Growing hemp for the first time part two
publication date: Sep 1, 2019
In the first part of this article in the August GFM I shared how we came to plant a quarter acre of hemp this spring after getting a contract with a local processor. They want to make it into salves, tinctures and other products. Since we haven’t grown hemp before, we planted extra just to be safe. Now the crop is looking good and I anticipate having more than we need to satisfy our contract.
At the end of the previous article I was describing how we hope to get a better price for the portion of our crop that may be sold on the open market by getting it Certified Clean Cannabis. This is the equivalent of organic certification offered by our certifier, MOFGA Certification Services, until hemp is officially added to the list of crops that can be certified organic. That will probably happen this fall or winter, so hemp grown nationwide next year will probably be able to be certified organic like any other crop.
