#HempHack: A Workshop
for Budding Hemp
Farmers & Entrepreneurs
October 24-25, 2019
Faculty: Doug Fine
With the recent change in regulations opening up a burgeoning market, small acreage farmers have an opportunity to add a new source of revenue: growing hemp. What’s more, utilizing regenerative practices that build soil and sequester carbon results in the highest quality hemp, giving you a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
But this opportunity is not handed to you on a platter. There is little to no off-season- you have to be an entrepreneur following harvest. It can take several years for a value-added enterprise to show a positive revenue stream. Evolving regulations and a gold-rush mentality for CBD hemp flower means that you constantly have to stay on your toes.
This class and workshop will cover every part of the process by which a small acreage, organic farmer and entrepreneur can develop a successful enterprise, including the following:
