Meet Our Hemp Education Content Contributors

The National Hemp Association’s Hemp Educational Series would like to thank our content contributors and presenters for their time, knowledge, and services to bring you, our Members, quality hemp education on the go.

Our Mission to Support You

The National Hemp Association launched the Standing Committee for Social Equity in 2020 to highlight the disenfranchised community. To give back and to display support to the community and to our industry as a whole, we’ve launched the Hemp Educational Series for our Members and members of other non-profits whose vision and mission is to help underrepresented communities. Because of this initiative, we are able to provide quality hemp education through mobile and desktop platforms for learners at their pace.

Bonnie Blue Farms

Bonnie Blue Farms is committed to the regeneration of the land through the conscious raising of grass-fed livestock and high-quality organic hemp. Ross and his family use a holistic approach to farming and collaboration by individuals interested in a common vision to raise produce and products that benefit both the community and the surrounding ecosystem. In 2016 after the birth of his daughter, Ross officially began his own farm after years of working at various farms including the Rodale Institute to learn the latest in organic growing techniques and farm management.  Starting with grass-fed sheep and organic vegetables, once the raising of hemp was legal for farmers in Pennsylvania, Ross jumped at the chance to learn about a new crop and industry.

Santa Fe Farms

Santa Fe Farms is a cultivator and processor of industrial hemp focused on regeneration and carbon sequestration. They transform hemp into high impact chemical and physical ingredients and components which can be incorporated into products that focus on health and wellness, human and animal nutrition, agriculture, building materials, paper, packaging, plastics, and advanced carbon products, as well as tradeable carbon “offsets/credits” used by enterprises to meet their ESG goals and/or regulatory requirements.
