Hemp farming

Asked January 11, 2019, 10:54 AM EST

I have a small farm in SE Monroe County. Am interested in getting away from beans and corn. was interested in the Hemp Farming for fiber and seed. I have talked to a few people and thought it best to ask the professionals. Where do you start? get a contract with a commercial company?

Hello! Thank you for contacting MSU Extension!

We don't currently have any research or education programs going for hemp, so I am not sure I can help you. I would suggest you search on google and see if you can find someone in MI that is working on hemp. I am not aware of any commercial companies that purchase or contract grow hemp.

Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck!
