Hemp Industry Pioneers Drive Economic Impact And Legislation From Kentucky Home

Family hemp farm in Kentucky
As our Kentucky grown hemp-derived products make their way around the world, we are pleased to be a part of the economic re-purposing of Kentucky family farms, facilities, and personnel.

As we celebrate Independence Day, we celebrate the spirit of the American family farmer, and pay homage to the value systems that the agricultural community brings to our great country. From our Kentucky home, we recognize the tremendous effort and persistence that generations have given to drive this industry forward. We carry these traditions on in 2018 by galvanizing momentum for the Farm Bill -- bringing together grassroots organizations, hemp product manufacturers, family farmers, and industry advocates from all walks of life in support of the full and final legalization of hemp and hemp-derived products.

GenCanna™ is proud to be entering our fifth outdoor growing season through the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program, and this season plans to put more than 2 million hemp plants in the ground on family farms in Clark County, Harrison County, Garrard County, and for the first time ever, in Western Kentucky’s Graves County.

Always Kentucky Proud™, GenCanna’s compliant program partners with the finest greenhouses in Bourbon County, Garrard County, Scott County and Clark County, and family farmers to produce high quality hemp from our unique genetics and agronomic model, and shares a special relationship with the legislators and hemp industry advocates of the Bluegrass State.

We are proud of our Kentucky roots, and fortunate to conduct our efforts in conjunction with the nation’s most successful and innovative agricultural department. As our Kentucky grown hemp-derived products make their way around the world, we are pleased to be a part of the economic re-purposing of Kentucky farms, facilities, and personnel.

The history of hemp in our country is deep and nuanced -- and we are excited to be at the forefront of bringing this multi-faceted product back to a primary position in American agriculture. We celebrate the freedoms granted to us by continuing to help family farmers farm a crop that has tremendous benefits in places where tobacco once dominated the landscape. This day is not possible without the ultimate sacrifice given by our women and men of the military, and we honor them with our commitment to representing the core values of our country through our work every day.
