March 13, 2019 / TheNewswire / Vancouver, British Columbia - Future Farm Technologies Inc. (the "Company" or "Future Farm") (CSE: FFT) (OTCQB: FFRMF) is pleased to announce that it has received two licenses from the US State of Maine, through the Company's subsidiary, Future Farm Maine, LLC, for the cultivation of industrial hemp in 2019.
One license covers its Amity and Hersey farms in Maine and the other is for the Belfast, Maine processing facility.
"This is an important achievement for Future Farm in the United States, marking our second year of hemp farming in Maine and signifies our sustainability in the state's agricultural footprint," says William Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. "Our success and leadership in 2018 uniquely position Future Farm to continue as one of the leading growers of high-quality hemp-for-wellness products in the Northeast."
Future Farm Maine will use the existing Belfast building to germinate an estimated 250,000 hemp seeds over the next few months, which will then be planted on 100 acres of prime farmland to meet the summer growing season at the Amity and Hersey farms.
Future Farm Maine plans to leverage the Cherry Wine seeds from its 2018 harvest as the primary cultivar planted. Visit https://www.futurefarmshop.com/ to place an order. Once harvested, the hemp will be dried and further refined into CBD oils and other products for sale to makers of edibles, creams and lotions who require naturally produced, very high quality ingredients.
