LOCATED IN RURAL KENTUCKY...
Hi, I'm Chad, founder of Hemp Foods America. In 2014, I moved from California to a small town in Kentucky where legislation for industrial hemp cultivation made it possible to bring hemp into the rotation. As much as I tried to eat organic food and spend money to positively affect our industrial food system, I felt I could make a stronger contribution to solving the problem beyond being picky about what I ate.
When I arrived in New Castle, Kentucky, I was charged to see that the problems plaguing the rural agrarian community presented an opportunity to build a business around bringing hemp back into the agricultural economy and lead an organic rotation. Creating jobs in a manufacturing facility to process a crop that was grown in nearby fields is the type of economic development that politicians talk about, but entrepreneurs and communities need to come together to build.
WHAT WE NEED & THE PERKS YOU CAN RECEIVE
LEGALITY OF HEMP
Right now, growing industrial hemp is only legal in a handful of states if permitted by the state's Department of Agriculture. Industrial Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) still remains a Schedule 1 Narcotic. While selling, consuming, wearing, and processing hemp remains legal, cultivating it does not. Hemp Foods America is taking part in the dialogue to change this on the federal level. While we are building the market, we have offshore partners that will ensure our orders are uninterrupted and our company launches smoothly.
