A: It is like a dream come true for me. It feels like my day job is being a business man, and then I also have a hobby farm. Having the chance to be involved on the farm is in my DNA. If we take the time this year to to understand how to farm the crop properly, we can develop a sustainable and scalable model around a solid genetic. Then we can build our farming operation into something significant simultaneously.
Q: What made you choose to grow NWG seed?
A: I think NWG is bringing the heat, and breeding for traits to make the crop more cruise control like than what most farmers are used to because those genetics have be trialed for years. NWG 2730 in the right conditions is growing like corn, and that’s very promising.
Q: What advice would you give to other hemp farmers or to farmers considering growing hemp?
A: My advice for any farmer getting into hemp is to go slow, be calculated, and be cautious. Hemp is a finicky crop, so don’t be overzealous. You can’t look at corn, wheat, beans, and hemp the same.
Do your homework, start small, and grow.
