Brandon Manger

Brandon Manger (Mango) is the Lead Cultivator and Project Manager for the Dakota Green Terp Ranch. He specializes in organic living soil and regenerative ag practices. He loves cultivating in mixed light greenhouses as he believes the sun is the missing ingredient for proper genetic expression and "greasy" terpene profiles. He has put his heart and soul into the cannabis industry for over 15 years and is extremely grateful to bring craft sungrown and mixed light cannabis to the people of South Dakota. He believes the Dakota Green Terp Ranch will do its part in increasing the health of this state "one plant at a time." Brandon is a South Dakota native, father of two beautiful children, Willow and Cedar, and husband to his queen, Jenah. They enjoy fishing for massive northern pike, rock hunting and exploring the land whether it's on foot, in a boat, or on a snowmobile or snowboard. When asked about what his favorite part of the cannabis industry is, Brandon replied, "The patients. It's all about providing the safest alternative medicine to the patients. I'm here to be a steward of these plants so they can in turn provide relief, which I believe is a form of love that we can all share together through these plants."
