Fiber Production

Game-changing innovation in hemp fiber

World's Strongest Fiber

Our new decorticator is the first in the world to remove the fibre from fresh stalks, producing one of the strongest fibres in the world.

The decorticator can be mounted on a harvester, so both seed & fibre are removed in one pass.

Cellulose Production

The world needs more cellulose now than ever.

A modern material

Cellulose is used to make paper products, fabrics, plastics, biofuel and 3D printed objects.

The demand is higher than ever, and hemp is the most efficient way of filling the need due to it’s fast growing speed and low reliance on fertilizers and pesticides

Healthy Food

Safe and nutritious food for everyone

Safe food for all

Our modern diets have become depleted in essential nutrients such as omega fatty acids and healthy proteins.

Hemp contains these nutrients, including the unique edestin protein that is readily-available and very close in structure to human blood globulin.

Meet The Passionate Team Behind HempFarm

Disturbed by the amount of pollution showing up on the land and in the waterways, the founders felt compelled to find a solution. Research led them to discover that hemp is one of the most beneficial plants on earth for cleaning up the soils, air and waterways. Hemp has been an essential part of human culture for over 10,000 years, serving as a nutrient-dense food, medicine, clothing, shelter, and energy source for millions of people across the globe. HempFarm has been working since 2008 to return hemp to the people, and to allow hemp to be used in all its forms for modern living. Technology has come a long way since hemp’s prohibition, so now the only limit to hemp’s potential is the human imagination.
