Tenessee Hemp Farmers

Tennessee’s hemp industry is set to have a banner year. According to The Tennessean, more than 2,600 farmers and businesses have been licensed to grow hemp in the state, representing an increase of 1,110% when compared to the previous year. Although there has been a large uptick of large-scale hemp producers in Tennessee, most of the state’s new farmers will be cultivating hemp on five acres or less. At least 37 hemp farms in the state are licensed to grow 100 acres and only five farms are licensed to grow over 1,000 acres.
