Our Farm

Mount Horeb

Mount Horeb Hemp is located in the rural township of Perry in southern Wisconsin; agriculture is Perry’s major land use. Perry’s steep forested topography escaped glaciation during the last ice age and is part of what is called The Driftless Area. The town has a Land Use Plan intended to preserve its rich agricultural land. Mount Horeb Hemp is located in the fertile valley floor, where glacial meltwaters laid down deep concentrations of silt. We grow your hemp using organic methods in the choice loamy soil, of the place, we call home.

 

The Hemp Hustler

Kattia Jimenez, Founder and Owner of Mount Horeb LLC, advocates for hemp because it could revitalize Wisconsin’s agriculture sector, an industry that’s been central to the state’s economy and culture for centuries, perhaps even returning the state to its family farm roots.

“Initially the (hemp) pilot program was created to help struggling farmers. We have two dairy farms here in our state that close per day.  Farmers need a new crop. But what I have found is that what it’s really done, in a way, is brought in a lot of new people to farming, like me. I’ve never farmed anything.  So even though I’m doing it very, very small scale, it’s really interesting to see when I go to different conferences or seminars is that it’s a lot of people that are new to farming and it’s smaller scale, which is still exciting.”

The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.
