Hemp produces a long tap-root which aerates the soil in which it grows. Because of this taproot, hemp is well This aeration effect helps improve the drainage of our soils, improving the performance of future crops grown in the same soil. Hemp is also tolerant to pests, diseases and fungi.
Hemp is a carbon sink
Research has shown that hemp can absorb more carbon dioxide per hectare in one year than a pine forest can! The carbon dioxide that is absorbed by the plant is locked into the fibre of the crop, which can be used in clothing, buildings, textiles, plastics, carpet and so much more!
All of our hemp is grown organically
Hemp being very tolerant to pest and diseases, is very well suited to organic production. Not having to spray nasty chemicals on our crops makes us happy, makes the environment happy and we hope it will make you happy too! Not only does hemp display resistance to pest and disease, it also suppresses weeds naturally. This function enables us to direct drill the crop into the paddock without damaging soil structure or using herbicides.
We think that hemp is a magic crop, how about you?
Not only does hemp have a very low environmental impact, it provides us with some of the most nutritious food in the world and the strongest, most versatile natural fibres on Earth. Every time you eat hemp, you can do so knowing that you are indirectly benefiting the environment with every mouthful! <3
