Mt. Folly Farm Grows Hemp

We got our 2017 hemp crop in the ground June 2.

We’ve participated in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s innovative hemp program for three growing seasons now, and have a plot of hemp which will be certified organic this year.

Weeds have been our problem, a big one. This year, we bought a flame weeder, and the Organic Association of Kentucky is having a field day here in August, to see if it works. To stay posted, check Mt. Folly Farm on facebook, or email me at laura@laurasmercantile.com

We also are using hemp fiber in the chinking and insulation on the log cabin. Again, check facebook, and we’ll get some picture up here soon.
