Northeast Hemp Commodities' main goal from the start of business has been to help the local Vermont farming community transition to hemp to diversify their crops. We grew our first 50 acres in 2018 and we gained valuable insight into the best ways to efficiently harvest hemp on an industrial scale. Going into the fall of 2019, we are poised and determined to put our experience and know how to the test for Vermont hemp farmers.
We have developed a harvesting services program that we believe will have an impact on the protection of Vermont hemp crops. In order for us to have a discussion regarding your crops, we need information about the specifications of your crops. Please take a moment to fill out step 1 in our application process. After we review your first submission, we will determine if your crop is suitable for our program. If it is, we will send you a link to step 2 which will be a more detailed questionnaire. If it isn't a match we will let you know.
We know farmers have a lot invested in their hemp crops, in time and money. We also realize that many farmers will not be in a cash position to pay for our services. Although we will offer our services for a fee, we are also offering the use of our services in exchange for a portion of the crop being harvested. For harvesting, we will take 10% of the crop. For baling we will take 10% of the crop. For drying we will take 10% of the crop. For all three services we will take 30% of the crop total. The remaining percentage of the crop will be left with the farmer.
