70 acre hemp farm in vernonia

Description

Startup hemp farm looking for strategic partners, &/or other farmers that can cultivate their crops or bees alongside the hemp.

Wooded spaces too for mushroom cultivation.

 


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

For the 2020 season the primary agricultural focus of rhe farm will be hemp, if you're not adverse to that, there should be some room for other farm activities.

There are probably around 40 acres available for planting hemp, looking for a strategic hemp growing partnership for another hemp farmer to handle some of the hemp acreage.

Also looking for farmers interested in planting other crops in between the rows of hemp. Typically there will be about 3-5' spacing between the centers of the hemp starts. What do you grow that we could cultivate alongside?

For my hemp acreage I was planning to have a cover crop of clover to keep weeds minimized, anyone interested in figuring out a way to keep bees out here?

There are several wooded acres as well, I'd love to get someone knowledgeable about mushrooms to utilize that portion of the property.

Property has several fruit trees, interested in taking cuttings from them to start more. Also looking to experiment with grafting the plumb branches onto the apple trees.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Hemp is primary focus of property while it's sustainable, hoping to build a brand that can compete with bigger operations.
Property is beautiful, large multi acre lake, bordered by a river. Thinking about more of a retreat type setting in the future possibly.
