The second member to join the team was a semi-retired farmer from Minnesota. Phil grew organic grass mixes for the largest horse racing track in MN for over a decade and owned the largest draft horse farm in the state as well. In addition to animal science training and decades of organic farming experience, he has a (human) nursing degree and truly understands how good CBD is for people and horses alike. With his knowledge and expertise, fields near Twin Valley in southwestern Minnesota were chosen for their ideal soil condition, good drainage, and favorable weather. Along with members of his family and hired farm workers, he over-sees the planting, tending, care, harvest, and drying of our hemp crop, without the use of any insecticides or artificial fertilizers. Hemp is more labor-intensive that most traditional crops, especially when grown outdoors in large fields, which is why decades of experience, support from good neighbors, and good weather, is why our crop was able to succeed where many other new farms didn’t do as well.
