Our Hemp Journey 2018-06-28T00:07:46+00:00

With our short growing season and the limited number of crops that can be grown in Sierra Valley, there are few plants that can be grown in our high mountain valley. After much research and consultation, we’ve concluded that hemp is a safe and versatile plant that was used by our Founding Fathers.

There’s a long list of products that can be made with hemp including the following:

  • Hemp Apparel

  • Hemp Body Care

  • CBD Oil

  • Hemp Paper

  • Hemp Protein

  • Hemp Seed Oil

  • Hemp Seed

Hempcrete is another promising material; it is a bio-composite material, a mixture of hemp hurds and lime used as a material for construction and insulation.

We want to provide a safe and reliable source of industrial hemp, and we are excited that it will be locally grown in Plumas County, California. We believe hemp can become a very sustainable agricultural crop for our local economy.

Research

The College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources at the University of Nevada, Reno, a state and federally accredited institution of higher education, will be partnering with A24 Farming to conduct research on industrial hemp. Possible research questions include:

  • Insect predation 

  • Weed control

  • Plant disease

UNR would like to assist us in developing a scientifically sound plot plan within a center pivot on A24 Farming to obtain useful data on growing hemp. Hemp has important attributes in areas that are water-limited, such as the eastern side of the Sierra. We are interested to discover what the water savings are when irrigating industrial hemp versus alfalfa.
