Your hemp crop may not be considered USDA organic yet, but the Kentucky Hemp Research Foundation has an organic funding opportunity for you anyways!

The 2016 growing season is underway and we are committed to fueling the organic hemp industry forward! We are offering limited funding to help you with some of the costs associated with growing hemp using organic methods.

Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

Application: Application for Organic Material


1. Growers must provide proof of legal participation in a Hemp Pilot Program.

2. Given the limited funding available, small family-farms will receive preferential treatment so that more producers are positively impacted with the available funds.

Due Date: June 16th, 2016

This effort is an extension of the Kentucky Hemp Research Foundation’s GoOrganic! Program. The funding was made available through the generous donation of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps to the KHRF’s GoOrganic! Program.
