For the first time in over 100 years, hemp flower cultivation is now permitted in the great state of New Jersey, the Garden State, and Freestone Farms secured one of its first official licenses. It began with the restoration and conversion of a century- old peach processing plant inside of a pole barn into a state of the art indoor growing facility, complete with a propagation chamber and in-house hemp processing. From there it grew to encompass more than 10 acres, with greenhouses, outdoor acreage and an extraction lab planned for the near future. With the latest in West Coast farming techniques we aim to produce the highest quality flower possible, striving to do so with all organic inputs, artisan well water and and most importantly, well-practiced hands.
