So I know that I am a little late, that seems to be the story of my life these days! I know that summer officially started a few days ago, but I am still catching up from all of the activity of hemp life in the spring. As the school year wound down and the hemp farming wound up, somehow I managed to avoid being a large part of the planting crew. Thank goodness for two full grown sons who were able to help their father get all of those plants in the ground! With their help and the help of a couple of friends, I can say that Northeast Kingdom Hemp Season 2 is well underway! As summer unfolds we will be busy making sure that this year’s crop is a good as it can be. We will continue to focus on quality over quantity and work hard to grow the healthiest plants possible to use in making our products. It is probably more work than most people would imagine, but we truly love what we do. We feel so lucky to be able to live in the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and to be able to work as a family, doing something that helps so many people. As a school teacher, I have always enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with my boys during the summer. Although it used to involve a lot more playing and beach time, this hemp life is alright! I hope that summer brings everyone something to feel good about.
