a wider range of hemp strains, all the medicinal plants above and some more, flax, safflower and other oilseeds.
We will expand the range of crops by contracting some plants from the research stations, we currently cooperate with 4 of them, each specialized in different medicinal plants and oilseeds.
We have a long term cooperation with a well known professor that had dedicated his life to study hemp for more than 40 years. He developed some of the national strains. He makes us annual visits, share experience, share seeds for various strains. We also visit his plantations in the research station.
Farm is fully equipped with all the seeding, carriage, harvesting, trailers and other agricultural machines needed.
Farm land is very compact and gardens are all in the same town village which makes is easy to control, especially for the medicinal plants (controlling weeds and harvesting is done on daily basis).
Being all organically means that weed control and most of the harvesting, drying, storing process is done manually. For this as explained, we have team of season workers that were trained for each plant separately.
We are currently finishing 240sqm plant (cold pressing centre, laboratories, production hall and invoicing, expediting facilities).
Existing storing capacity for raw materials is for 1000sqm in one silo and two floors wharehouse.
Developing the hemp products has started also with the first hemp crops, and developed during the years, finding the best recipes and having the products tested (lab but also in public networks).
The experience in hemp for the last couple of years allowed us to develop the cbd oil.
We opened our farm site beginning 2014.
So basically we don’t sell any of our crops, we incorporate plants, seeds, cold pressed oils in end products, and the current range of products is only a first shot. The variety, diversity of natural products will be in continuous growth. We expect a large products expansion in 2016, this will include the extra virgin organic oils for consume, medical and cosmetic use, the cosmetics and medicinal products, cbd, food supplements and mix of tees.
