This week NWG CSO, John McKay visits the great state of Minnesota! He is talking with prospective hemp farmers and demonstrating our varieties at Minnesota Farm Fest. Minnesota Farmfest strives to bring together the best in agribusiness from Minnesota and around the country. This endeavor provides one place for farmers to network, experience and learn to grow their farming operations. The event takes place across 50 acres of land to showcase products, services and technologies from over 500 exhibitors and vendors. Through careful planning and organization, they provide live product demonstrations, host smart and insightful educational sessions and organize fun family activities to not only help farmers grow their family businesses but also to celebrate farming and the rural lifestyle. We are excited to join Minnesota Hemp Growers Co-op at this event and talk about hemp production opportunities in Minnesota. Tomorrow John heads on up to an NWG breeding site at University of Minnesota and a visit the Minnesota Hemp Growers Co-op's NWG 4000 crop. Its a BUSY but rewarding time in the season visiting fields of our genetics across the US. John McKay promotes NWG hemp genetics at Minnesota Farmfest Minnesota Farmfest Hemp Plot - Planted in July
