we love every little bit

Love for the Earth and its provisions. Love for the people we work with. Love for the quality ingredients we source. Care in each product we make. It’s the only way for us to make honest, fine chocolates with rich, nuanced flavors.

our seed-to-sale ecology

We’re committed to fairness, sustainability, minimal environmental impact and enhancing communities. Aside from using only hand-harvested, Fair Trade cacao beans, our toppings and chocolate inclusions are locally sourced, organic, and provided by local partners.

Founder and CEO

A fourth-generation Texan, Christine Smith built her first bonafide village on the family ranch at age 10—a prelude to her degree in architectural design at the Univ. of Texas Austin, studies in Denmark and quest to form thriving communities on small footprints.

Christine arrived in Oregon at the start of 1999, embarking on a 20-year career as an architect while her husband Jasper owned and operated a medical marijuana dispensary. Combining curiosities about tempering chocolate and a marketplace limited to cannabis-butter treats wrapped in cellophane, Christine applied her rich understanding of thoughtful proportions and exacting composition to start Grön in 2014.

While Christine and her expanding team keep up with the growing demand across Oregon, there’s also her family life with Jasper, their two kids, a dog, cat, two horses and nine chickens. Their home is on Skunk Valley Farm outside Portland where Jasper oversees the property’s Tier II OLCC-certified and Clean Green Certified grow facility. Together, the husband and wife duo are committed to providing organic, sustainably produced seed-to-sale cannabis confections.
