This week on the industrial hemp podcast we talk to Morgan Elliott, co-founder and chief operating officer at IND HEMP in Fort Benton, Montana, where they are building a massive hemp industrial complex to process the grain and fiber being grown by Montana farmers.
We talk about her role at the company that she founded with her family, the leadership role IND HEMP has taken in the industry, the potential of the US hemp market and what that could mean for farmers.
“There’s such a big pie in the sky of opportunity if we’re talking acres,” says Elliott. “Just five percent of the United States’ commodity market — so mostly going to corn and soy — if we had just five percent of that, it’s like 8 million acres. It’s huge.”
