Healing through agriculture
As part of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Industrial Hemp Program, we power the exciting developments hemp has to offer. Our top priorities lie in the benefits of farming hemp to heal the earth, the development of sustainable industrial hemp solutions, and the production of high-end cannabinoid ingredients for use in alternative medicines. Our agricultural locations span multiple counties in Pennsylvania and Maryland, providing hemp industry access and connectivity to the farming community.
Our specialized team offers extensive insight and combines 4th generation farming, specialty crop subject matter expertise, and legalized cannabis business industry experience.
The 2018 Farm Bill removes industrial hemp from regulation under the Controlled Substances Act and allows commercial production of industrial hemp, creating an exciting opportunity for industrial hemp in Pennsylvania and the farming industry alike.
