As the industry leader of USDA certified organic hemp cannabidiol (CBD) products, we are excited to announce the launch of our latest regenerative farming initiative for Earth Month. This Pre-Hemp Spring Planting Season, Gorilla FarmCo has planted 225 Million USDA Certified Organic cover crop seeds on our 1,474-Acre USDA Certified Organic Hemp Farm to help combat climate change and protect the planet.
Cover crops are used between growing seasons at a farm to protect the earth and preserve the soil. Cover crops smother weeds, enhance water availability, improve soil structure and stability, increase biodiversity, prevent soil erosion and help control pests. These are beneficial to the farm and the earth in contrast to leaving fields bare to the elements in off-season months.
The company’s vertically integrated hemp farming operation, Gorilla FarmCo, owns and operates a 1,474 acre USDA certified organic hemp farm in Arizona, making it one of the largest certified organic farm-to-shelf operations. The farm uses zero parabens, toxic chemicals, pesticides, and synthetic fragrances. This regenerative practice to plant cover crops is rarely used as it can be costly and require additional efforts to maintain properly. However, we recognize the importance of this special contribution and its environmental benefit to the health of the soil. It is not only essential to the well-being of the planet, food supply, and human life but also to the efforts to combat climate change.
