Last year’s experimental crop, Hemp, expanded into a modern-day “Gold Rush” for our area.
Massive farms were purchased and planted to hemp. Even people ripped up their yards and put in hemp. Our air smells like skunk. 🙂
We’ve seen two large processing plants also come in.
Now, here is the rub…there are lots and lots of plants with potential to make thousands and thousands of dollars. That is all well and good.
(From what we are understanding) To get your hemp processed you have to ‘make an application to have your product processed. And THAT, My Friends, is causing a huge cry of anguish here.
The secret to all crops is to have a market. And, of course for the market to pay you well.
If you have a crop and no market—then all the hype is just a shadowy shape rippling on the wind of speculation.
I saw another sundog glowing in the silver clouds!
