A Wisconsin Hemp Harvest

A bill passed in 2017 allowed Wisconsin farmers the opportunity to grow hemp for the first time in nearly fifty years.

Whilden Hughes, of Hughes Farms in Rock County, was just one two farmers in Rock County, and one of only 184 operations in the state, who were registered and licensed to grow hemp for the first time.

He joined me on the phone after his harvest in September 2018.
