Kentucky Hemp Farming Expert
Chuck is a hard-working former tobacco farmer, state politician, and 4H/FFA advocate. On his 80+ acres of farmland, every blade of grass is perfect and there is nary a weed in sight. His attention to detail, professionalism, and work ethic produces the best in Kentucky-grown hemp. Chuck is a plant scientist, always experimenting on how best to propagate, grow, harvest, and grind hemp for the needs of Ananda.
By working with Chuck, Ananda has a reliable and safe source of consistent genetics to create our line of premium hemp nutraceuticals. Chuck's exceptional ability to educate and showcase his fields makes him an invaluable asset. Chuck brings respect, ethics, and genuine southern hospitality to the fledgling (and sometimes questionable) hemp industry.
