We are on a mission to contribute to the empowerment and enrichment of communities by delivering Kentucky-grown organic hemp products and services.

We are comprised of a dedicated team of professionals who believe quality begins at the source. From our Radical 200 Organic Farmer's Cooperative to our innovative and rigorous processing standards, we are raising the bar for the organic industrial Hemp industry.
Organic farming practices offer numerous science-backed benefits for consumers, as well as the environment. Plants are grown without synthetic chemical pesticides and heavy metals, thus resulting in products without dangerous toxins and an increase in health-centric antioxidants. Organic consumer goods are value-added, as consumers are willing to pay more for clean, organic products and food.
The U.S. Hemp industry was valued at an estimated $820 million in annual retail sales in 2017, and that figure is expected to grow steadily. Hemp is one of the most resilient and versatile resources, and the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2013 sparked the revitalization of this
multi-faceted plant's future within the economic landscape of America.
Environment & Sustainability
When crops are grown using organic farming practices, the environment benefits tremendously. Soil quality is improved because organic matter is enriched, organic farming fosters biodiversity, pollution and run-off is greatly reduced, no synthetic chemical pesticides or toxins are used on plants, and carbon dioxide is reduced, resulting in a cleaner, healthier environment.
