On January 21, Kentucky Hempsters attended an MOU (memorandum of understanding) meeting with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) and received an official approval to process industrial hemp through the pilot program this year. Kentucky Hempsters' parent company, United Hemp Industries, has partnered with Gajdzik Farms in Shelbyville, Kentucky to research on-farm processing methods for industrial end products.

Kentucky Hempsters' main focus is education - that is the key to getting our federal government to remove industrial hemp from the controlled substances act and creating a thriving market demand.

Stay tuned for updates on projects and events. We look forward to offering a look at the past, present and future of the Kentucky hemp industry through our endevours this year!
