Zenbarn is a family affair. Noah & Ari Fishman grew up in Vermont and together with Noah's wife Marlena launched Zenbarn as a community space to bring their neighbors together. Since then it has become a premier destination for live music, weddings and events of all sorts.

In Spring 2020 Zenbarn Farms was born. They created a line of CBD products with hemp grown on their family farm and products developed in partnership with a local lab.

Cannabis has always been a welcome addition to the Fishman's lives personally. “I don’t think there is a way that I don’t use it,” Marlena says about her relationship with cannabis. “I consume it in all forms – tea, smoking an “L” (though, not much anymore), tinctures, and the occasional edible depending on the setting. Oh – and a bubbler for the sound effects. Each method is a different ritual and spiritual practice.”

Noah and Marlena are both dedicated to supporting those in the cannabis community – especially BIPOC. While committing to donating 1% of proceeds to social and environmental causes, they launched The Cannabis Generation Equity Fund: a program to support BIPOC by allowing them an avenue to access the cannabis industry both in Vermont and nationwide.


In October 2015, Marlena and Noah opened Zenbarn Studio as a wellness studio – offering lessons on yoga, mindfulness, and meditation. They then opened their culinary element in November of that same year – a farm-to-table restaurant, which was not only the first in Vermont to serve CBD-infused food and beverages, but continues to feature the finest local ingredients – including cannabis.

Now, the space spans the lifestyle gambit: from wellness to live music to food and cannabis. Zenbarn’s event space features live music 3-4 nights per week and is a popular wedding destination for those near and far from the quaint New England town. Live acts have included the likes of Etana, a Jamaican singer; Cappadonna and Inspectah Deck of Wu-Tang Clan; Supaman, an Apsáalooke performer, and more. They also feature international musicians and a variety of cultural sounds to operate as a true community center for all. 


Zenbarn Farms is a multi-part store featuring a full line of CBD products, gifts, educational exhibits and a co-located dispensary.
