HempHemp Producer Investment Opportunities

County of Barrhead is looking at Hemp to anchor an agribusiness cluster, as well as other agribusiness opportunities to locate on the Kiel Industrial Park.
County of Barrhead has three companies actively expanding into the hemp space, as well as additional entrepreneurs researching alternative fibre uses. Current activities are focused on processing for food and vitamin supplements, farm and pet feed products manufactured and sold, as well as a decorticator and an incubator for future hemp start up and those working towards commercialization. Our producers have been working to provide contracted acres to the companies in question on an as needed basis. The Barrhead area is very complimentary to growing hemp.
