Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

Yes we have a detailed business plan and vision. This first year we are looking for multiple smaller plots for research and hemp production purposes, where we will assess viability of certain seed lines against variable climate conditions across all growing zones in the state. Therefore we are looking for a variety of land parcels which will meet the needs for our research. We are also looking for knowledgeable farmer-partners who have experience and/or expertise in sowing and harvesting plots of other fiber/grain crops.
