Our plants go in the ground on tomorrow! We will be sure to take pictures and post them. Did you know that Dovetail Ridge Farm has bred its own certified organic seed on farm? It produces plants that are around six feet tall, male and female, is fragrant and beautiful! Most CBD hemp seed is feminized to suppress the males. Mountain flower is natural seed, so it grows both. Most of the male plants get culled, which always makes me sad. It is necessary to get the unfertilized females that produce the most CBD. We have a seed patch where we do move a couple of males and a few females, so the males will fertilize a handful of females. This is where our natural, organic seed comes from. It is always exciting to be a a part of this process with our hemp plants.

Planting CBD Hemp Plants
The seeds sprouted! The plants grew. And now, its time to harden them off in preparation for putting them out in the field. Joe has been tilling, mulching, and making our own potash. Big stacks of organic lumber scraps were burning in the rain last night. It was beautiful. It all came off the farm, and now will go back in to the soil. CBD, CBG, and CBV hemp will grow here on Dovetail Ridge this season. And we will make the best products available from these gorgeous , organic, cannabinoid-rich plants. To us, organic CBD matters. Small farmed. Hand tended. Homemade. We love it!
