Half Hill Farm lowers prices on CBD hemp products

This Valentine’s Day we’re sharing the love with a huge price drop on all our farm’s CBD hemp products! As the hemp industry matures and processing and hemp prices fall, we’re passing the savings on to customers as we promised while still using all the same quality ingredients and processes you expect from us.

Half Hill Farm is a natural health & wellness product maker founded in 2012 and was the first certified organic farm to grow hemp in Tennessee. We are now a licensed hemp grower, processor and permitted manufacturer producing quality full spectrum extract CBD hemp oil blends in 500mg, 1000mg, and 2500mg formulas and a 1000mg full spectrum CBD hemp topical salve as well as 500mg, 1000mg, and 2500mg 0% THC CBD oils.

Half Hill Farm manufactures our hemp products and other wellness products in our FDA registered and state permitted manufacturing facility in Woodbury. Our hemp products use high quality CO2 extraction while most competitors use cheaper and faster ethanol and butane extractions. We also do not use any additives, flavors or artificial ingredients. Each batch is tested by third-party independent labs to ensure quality and compliance.

CBD HEMP PRICE CHANGES :

  • 500mg full spectrum was $48 – now $38

Half Hill Farm partners with former tobacco farm to grow hemp

Half Hill Farm is now partnered with a former tobacco grower to produce premium indoor grown hemp flower. The new 5,000 square feet indoor grow space at Boze Farms in Carthage, TN should be fully operational later this year.

The indoor grow will provide bulk wholesale flower to stores and manufacturers including Half Hill Farm’s Wellness Emporium retail stores across the state. The new climate controlled facility will also supply their new CO2 extraction lab in Woodbury to ensure in-house quality controls from start to finished product.

“We know retailers and consumers have a lot of options on the market,” said Half Hill Farm owner Vince Oropesa. “That’s why we’re focused on providing a premium value with quality growing and processing that can scale to meet demand.”

Many hemp farmers and processors in Tennessee rely on solvent extraction that can process mass quantities of hemp at a time using ethanol or butane. Half Hill Farm’s new extraction and testing lab will use higher quality supercritical CO2 extraction. The slower process uses a few pounds of hemp at a time and will help ensure only the best hemp is extracted producing a better quality product option for consumers and manufacturers.

“We know we can’t CO2 extract everything,” said owner Scot Smotherman who heads up the partnership. “But there’s no shortage of good quality ethanol extraction service options for larger volume grows.”

Half Hill Farm was the first USDA certified organic farm in Tennessee to grow industrial hemp. We are now a licensed hemp grower, processor and permitted food manufacturer producing quality CO2 extracted CBD hemp oil blends in 500mg, 1000mg, and 2500mg formulas and a 1000mg full spectrum CBD hemp topical salve.

More than 2,900 grower licenses were issued to Tennessee farms by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture this year. For perspective, neighboring Kentucky is the nation’s third largest grower of hemp, and they issued 1,000 grower licenses this year.

The year round indoor grow and the ability to scale into several hundred thousand square feet elsewhere on the farm was a critical component in Half Hill Farm partnering with Boze Farm.

“Farming has taken a real beating over the past few years, “ said Joe Darren Boze. “We’re hoping hemp helps turns it around.”

Jimmy Joe Boze, Joe’s father, started growing hemp when his tobacco contract was suddenly pulled. He still proudly makes pre-rolls from last year’s harvest and humbly says he did it to see how it will go. While he’s hopeful, and sees how it helps people, he’s wary and still describes this year as ‘poking around to see what works.’

“This ain’t my first rodeo,” Jimmy Joe added with a wink and hint of good old farmer’s been-there-done-that attitude. “Let’s see what the boys can do with it.”

Half Hill Farm to open third retail store in Murfreesboro

We are very excited to announce we’ve signed a long term lease to bring our unique brand of better health & well being to the Boro! We will be renovating for the next month or so as we get the space ready, but you can start following the progress on Facebook at Wellness Emporium – Murfreesboro or on Instagram @MurfreesboroWellness!

The new location will be our farm’s third retail store and is located at 2136 Middle Tennessee BLVD Mufreesboro, TN 37130. We will feature a few of the products we make (kombucha, kefir sodas, mushroom extracts, tonics, tinctures, teas and more) plus other items that promote better health & well being. We hope to be open in June.

Construction begins on hemp testing and CO2 extraction lab In Woodbury

Half Hill Farm began construction on a hemp testing and supercritical CO2 extraction lab today at their Woodbury location. The lab will be one of only a few such facilities across the state.

Hemp farmers and manufacturers will be able to send crop or product samples to the lab for required testing to ensure quality and state compliance. The expansion will also help integrate Half Hill Farm’s partnered indoor hemp grow operations with production of high quality supercritical CO2 extractions for food, beverage and supplement makers.

“Bringing this healing plant to the people and keeping the value of the crop close to home is important to us,” said co-owner Christian Grantham. “Tennessee is ready to lead in this growing industry, and we are proud to keep this investment in Woodbury.”

This year, more than 2,700 industrial hemp grower licenses were issued to farmers by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. The state’s chapter of the Hemp Industries Association, the lobbying arm for farmers and industry stake holders, is now the largest in the country.

“Hemp is going to change our country,” said co-owner Vince Oropesa. “What I see it do for our customers will make a believer out of anyone.”

Since many customers use CBD products for personal health reasons, Half Hill Farm created partnerships to monitor the entire growing process from seed to flower harvest. The new lab will take those select buds and prep them for sale or extract them into oils.

“Our commitment to health and wellness runs deeper than the buzz of hemp,” said co-owner Scot Smotherman who is leading the farm’s hemp growth. “Being involved in the entire growing process all the way to extraction is critical to controlling quality.”

Half Hill Farm was the first certified organic farm to grow hemp in Tennessee. They are a licensed industrial hemp grower and processor and permitted manufacturer making CBD hemp products in an FDA registered facility under Good Manufacturing Practices. The farm got its start making mushroom extracts that are used across the country by cancer patients as adjunct therapies in consultation with a doctor.

Half Hill Farm recently opened two new health and wellness stores operating as the Wellness Emporium in Bell Buckle and Woodbury with plans to open two more this Spring. Their beverage and tonic manufacturing expansion late last year now has their products in 15 stores in Middle Tennessee with plans to expand for distribution later this year.

In addition to their popular functional beverages, mushroom extracts and apple cider vinegar tonics, Half Hill Farm also makes quality CBD hemp oil extract blends in 500mg, 1000mg, and 2500mg formulas and a 1000mg full spectrum CBD hemp topical salve.

The new hemp testing and extraction lab will be operational in the Summer. You can follow Half Hill Farm’s progress on FaceBook.

Organic grow plan for licensed industrial hemp farms

Today, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture began mailing out over 2,700 industrial hemp grower licenses for the 2019 grow season. If the record number is any indication, it could be the start of something big in Tennessee.

We are already getting lots of calls from farmers looking for buyers of flower and biomass. One of the requirements many buyers, including our business, will want is organically grown with no evidence of pesticides or other banned inputs in organically grown hemp.

One mistaken use or exposure to a banned input could render all your hard work unusable for certain buyers or the consumer, so we created a working draft of an Organic Grow Plan for licensed industrial hemp growers that outlines a few relevant National Organic Program standards used to certify a crop as organic by the USDA. It is not a full exhaustive plan and are not requirements, but it can be a great guidance to ensure quality and get you on your way to certifying your hemp as organic.

Half Hill Farm was the first certified organic farm to grow industrial hemp in Tennessee. We are a licensed grower, processor and permitted manufacturer that makes quality CBD hemp oils and other products. We are currently partnered with an indoor grow and building a CO2 extraction and testing lab at our Woodbury, TN facility. We are one of many retailers and manufacturers who will want quality Tennessee grown flower and biomass for our stores and products and hope this document can help ensure your product passes quality testing.

Collaboration: If you are a certified organic grower of hemp, or use organic practices you feel need to be added to this document, please leave a comment with the addition or contact us directly. If you have favorite organic products you use that you’d like shared, or have questions, add them in comments. We’ll edit changes into the document. We want this document to be open sourced and available to everyone. If you are one of the many new hemp growers in Tennessee, congratulations and we hope the very best for your farm’s new direction!

Full spectrum CBD hemp salve for topical use

We are so happy to introduce our farm’s first full spectrum extract CBD hemp topical salve! Each 1 oz ultraviolet glass jar contains all organic sweet almond oil, calendula infused extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E oil extracted from sunflower seeds, frankincense and sweet orange essential oils in natural beeswax and 1000 mg full spectrum extract CBD hemp oil.

Most of what we make starts as a natural remedy for ourselves. When our farm started growing hemp organically in 2014, this is one of the products I couldn’t wait to make. As someone who suffers from life-long psoriasis, I understand the desire for a natural healing that works following misdiagnosis and failed recommendations.

I use our 1000mg full spectrum CBD topical salve almost everyday. After months of formulating and testing, we now make it for you with love in our FDA registered and state permitted manufacturing facility in Woodbury.

GRAND OPENING: Half Hill Farm opens Wellness Emporium in Woodbury

Half Hill Farm’s new location at 110 West High Street is now open to the public. The Wellness Emporium is next door to DTC and features kombucha, tonics and extracts made with love on site as well as other natural health and wellness products.

Grand Opening: The public is invited to enjoy free samples of komchuca and meet the owners and staff at a grand opening ribbon-cutting of the Wellness Emporium with the Cannon County Chamber of Commerce Friday Nov. 9, 2018 at 10 am.

It means a lot to us to have a permanent home here in Woodbury. We want to thank Tommy and Linda Malone for this opportunity. We wouldn’t be here without the opportunity to grow our business at the Arts Center over the past three years and for them thinking outside the box with us and letting us share the space to make that possible. It feels like forever ago that we were a 6 foot table of organic vegetables at the farmers market next door!

Earlier this year we partnered with Manchester’s Scot Smotherman to expand retail with the Wellness Emporium, a second store location in the heart of Bell Buckle, TN. We truly believed if it failed we could always offer services installing taps and walk-in coolers!

With Bell Buckle doing well, growing demand quickly led to the need for bigger manufacturing space. We were running out of product and turning away a lot of wholesale requests. High Street was the right place at the right time.

High Street: Half Hill Farm is expanding our craft fermented food and beverage manufacturing in the back part of the High Street location off the square. This includes kombucha and kefir, popular probiotic fermented beverages we lightly flavor with organic herbs and juices and bottle as a fizzy soda alternative. We will also continue expanding extracts and hemp oil products to include infused food and beverage and partner with MTSU’s Fermentation Science program for shared learning and resource opportunities.

We are proud of the work our team does to bring better health and well being to our community. Come visit us!

The Wellness Emporium is open seven days a week with several flavors of Half Hill Farm’s kombucha on tap and available by the cup, bottle or growler refills. Follow us on Facebook.

Stories of healing: how CBD hemp oil has changed lives in Tennessee

In the time since industrial hemp was legalized in Tennessee, over 1,000 Tennesseans have died from opioid use. The problem is so bad all over the country that it has been declared a national emergency by the federal government.

Some politicians funded by pharmaceutical contributions – like Tennessee’s Rep. Marsha Blackburn – have made the problem worse by removing the DEA’s authority to stop the flow of opioids into our communities. Now that the public knows which politicians are getting paid to keep the pills flowing, these same politicians are misusing state agencies as cover to focus the public’s attention instead on the purported dangers of hemp.

While some politicians use our tax dollars on behalf of pharmaceutical companies to convince us God’s creation is the problem, the fact remains that there have been zero deaths from the use of CBD extracts from industrial hemp in Tennessee. You can thank God for that, but there is something else you can do to protect our access to this natural gift.

Help us share stories of healing: We’ve seen veterans, farmers, pastors, police officers, teachers, family and people of all walks of life find healing using CBD. How has CBD affected your health? Please share your story here in comments and give a voice to hope and healing across the state of Tennessee!

We are now on the manufacturing side producing quality CBD hemp products.
