Industrial Hemp

Industrial Hemp offers the return of a highly useful crop that can help improve the world as well as the economics of farming.

Consistent profitability for the farming community requires sustainability within this reemerging industry and the infrastructure in which to operate. Learning and understanding how we can best produce a crop that makes it to market is key.

We will help you excel at AHA as well as in your chosen career. Congratulations on your new career move!
