Hemp Pilot Project
FarmOn! believes that farmers should not have to choose between sustainable, ethics-driven practices and long-term economic viability. With that in mind, we are pleased to announce that the hemp pilot project at our flagship operation Empire Farm is entering its fourth year.
Hemp is the fastest growing commercial crop in the country, and its potential as a lucrative cash crop is well-documented. New York is considered among the best states to grow hemp, and the state government has expressed its commitment to making New York a global leader in the field.
FarmOn! is proud to be a regional leader in the development of this exciting new cash crop. We believe that the potential of hemp cultivation to help rebuild rural economies could be huge, and we have partnered with other farms in the area to explore the many opportunities made available by recent legislative developments.
