Farmington has been approved to participate in the 2016 Hemp Pilot Program through the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and will be growing a small demonstration plot for research educational purposes. We’re partnered with United Hemp Industries to assist in executing the project, along with Kentucky Hempsters to provide hemp education and event promotion.
All proceeds go to Farmington and the resources necessary to support this year’s hemp project.
