John Irving was born and raised in Attleboro, MA. Immediately after high school John joined the US Army and proudly served his country for 8 years. While he was serving our country, he had the opportunity to learn and understand the process of a very large organization. He was able to learn skills such as logistics, supply management, inventory control, training and weapons maintenance.
Irving has been able to use the skills he acquired in the military to successfully earn his contractor’s license and operate his own business for 19 years with at times a team of nearly 20 employees. He has also had success with a variety of independent sales positions before he started 2 Friends Farm with his now wife Ashley Irving.
2 Friends Farm is a micro-greenery in Attleboro that specializes in a variety of micro greens that are sold through grocery store chains like Roche Brothers Markets and large produce distributors across New England and New York. John and Ashley founded this operation and have been cultivating these greens within federal organic guidelines since the beginning. John in primarily responsible for business development, sales and marketing, facility design, buildout and expansion, and maintenance as well as logistics.
He and Ashley are ecstatic to have founded Ashli’s Inc, Ashli’s Farm, and Ashli’s Extracts in 2017 and spent a year acquiring appropriate approvals and licenses in Attleboro so that Ashli’s can begin serving the community with quality safe cannabis products, creating several local jobs, and supporting the all out end of prohibition of cannabis. Irving’s primary role at Ashli’s will focus on funding acquisition, licensing compliance, local permitting compliance and business development.
