This spring look for hemp farms popping up all over Pennsylvania. Many farms will be growing this wonderful plant for the first time. Hemp is delivering a shot in the arm to Pennsylvania agriculture. With this boost of agricultural activity we should see old farms stabilize and young farms expand. We have given lectures on hemp farming since 2017. During our lectures we remind farmers to plan carefully for the intense labor needed for planting, transplanting, grooming, harvest and drying. It is alot of work, yet growing your own is also fun. We wish everyone a great growing season.
