Local Farmer Grows Hemp Business

An Eagle Point area farmer is the first person in the state to be licensed to grow industrial hemp. It’s the first time the crop has been grown in Oregon in 70 years. The seeds will have to be imported into Oregon from another country in order for operations to begin.

State regulators issued the license to Edgar Winters, a long-time industrial hemp advocate and the COO of Natural Good Medicines, located in Ruch, Ore. Winters is also the Director of Cannabis Research at Winterfox Farms.

25 acres is already tilled and ready for industrial hemp growing to begin in Rush.
