Heartland Industries Cracks The Code On Industrial Hemp Farming
American manufacturers have always known that hemp could help them build their products stronger, lighter, cheaper, and more sustainably.
- The first US Flag was made out of hemp textiles.
- Henry Ford built 40,000 Model T’s with hemp materials in 1941.
The power of the hemp plant has been known for centuries. This is not a secret anymore.
For years, the problem has been the same: there is no reliable supply chain for hemp materials. This means that American manufacturers can only utilize hemp for R&D materials. Without a reliable supply chain, manufacturers can not embed hemp into any product or packaging that is produced at scale.
Fortunately, the team at Heartland Industries has laser-focused on this problem. We have spent months figuring out how to help bridge the gap between the farmers and the hemp materials that can be utilized by manufacturers.
Bringing together the community
As we dove into the beginning of our own supply chain, we realized that hemp has been a problem in the farming community for a few reasons.
- Many people are misinformed and do not realize the difference between industrial hemp and CBD.
- Many farmers are not properly educated on how to grow and harvest hemp.
- Many farmers are not properly incentivized to transition from the crops they’re currently growing to hemp.
This is why Heartland has promised to provide seeds, fertilizer, and up to a 20% down payment on the product. This will give the farmers certainty and working capital that they’re not used to having access to.
In order to transition, farmers need to be given the proper resources and incentivization structure to succeed. This is why Heartland has brought on a series of senior advisors who focus solely on hemp farming.
Throughout our conversations with the farming community, we have realized that there are many untapped resources available to those who are looking for a sustainable supply of hemp.
- Fallow Land – hemp is a great turnover crop. Every few years, farmers need a crop to create nitrogen-rich soil and pull up any toxins. Hemp is one of the best turnover crops.
- Wheat & Corn Farmers – people who have spent years farming wheat/corn love working with hemp. This is because there is little to no retooling costs involved.
- Co-Ops – Heartland is connected with co-ops across America who each have access to tens of thousands of acres.
- Government Land – under the Bureau of Land Management, land can be easily sourced and developed as long as all environmental mandates are met.
- States, Cities, and Counties – Across the country, there are municipalities that have access to large plots of land that are just sitting there.
These are just a few of the farming resources that are available to create a reliable hemp supply chain.
Industrial Hemp Supply Chain
The Heartland Team is confident that there will be no problem sourcing enough hemp to satisfy demand.
But, once a healthy supply of hemp is grown, financed, and shipped, it must be efficiently processed and sold into the marketplace.
This is just part of the secret sauce that will allow Heartland Industries to do what others have only dreamed of. With an unlimited supply of industrial hemp, we have the capabilities to build anything on the planet.
We would love it if you joined us on this journey toward a more sustainable future.
