At Jessie’s Branch, we’ve searched far and wide to find the best hemp farms. However, that doesn’t mean we’re done by any means.
This is why we’ve introduced our Farming Co-Ops program, which was built to help hemp farmers gain proper licensing and support during all stages of the hemp crop’s life.
If you’re wondering how you can join our Farming Co-Op, you’ll first need to simply apply.
During this initial stage, your farming site will be surveyed by our agricultural specialists. Once complete, you’ll be notified if you’ve been accepted into our Farming Co-Op. It should be noted that spaces are limited, and applying does not mean you’ll be approved.
Once you’ve been approved for our Farming Co-Op, you’ll be prompted to decide which of our three services you’d like to begin with.
We offer three services that are meant to help you efficiently grow a gold standard hemp crop. Let’s take a look at the three services that we offer in detail.
Full Set-Up Includes All of the Below
Step 1: Farm Land/Greenhouse Soil Assessment
Your crops will only be as healthy as the health of your soil. Due to this, we immediately begin by assessing the nutritional value of your land. Whether you’re in a greenhouse or on farmland, we’ll send our soil scientists to get samples to paint a clear picture of what your soil needs - or doesn’t need.
Program Cost: $800.00
Step 2: Obtaining Proper Permits and Certificates
Next, we’ll move through the motions to lock-down the required paperwork and permits to allow you to legally cultivate hemp. This process is a complete headache for most; however, our legal experts will do the heavy lifting for you so you can focus on growing an incredible hemp crop.
Program Cost: $7,250
Step 3: Prepare Land for Planting
When it comes to large-scale agriculture, the planting phase is incredibly critical. It’s important because your preparation will show in the months to come. We recommend certain tilling practices and also hire professional workers to handle heavy machinery - such as disking, harrowing, and plowing.
Program Cost: $2750
(Excludes all training and on site labor first 30 days)
Step 4: Secure Crop Pre-Planting
One of the biggest dangers to your crop is damage from animals. Due to this, we set-up the necessary amount of fencing (non-electric or electric) on your land to ensure that nothing nibbles on your hemp. We also provide the necessary signage that’s required by law in any area that’s used to grow hemp.
Program Cost: $200 - $3500 per acre
Step 5: Identify and Install Water and Nutrition Delivery Systems
For many, finding appropriate water sources is a significant headache. Our irrigation professionals will adequately identify and install water and nutritional delivery systems to optimize your hemp crop.
Program Cost: $200 Per Acre
Step 6: Schedule Grow Management
Our team of plant specialists will be on-site for the first 30-days and oversee all operations from A-Z. After the 30 days, we’ll provide a plant technician to train an on-site caretaker of your choice. Don’t worry; if you don’t have a caretaker in mind - we’ll provide one.
Program Cost: $2,500
Step 7: Harvesting and Processing
Once your hemp crop is complete, we’ll oversee all operations, such as harvesting, drying, and curing. We’ll teach you and your team the best practices, so you’ll be ready for anything in the future.
Program Cost: $10,650
Step 8: Selling the Hemp Crop
Now that your hemp crop is done, it’s time to sell it. At Jessie’s Branch, we have over 230 distribution outlets, which ensure that you’ll find your asking price within a week. This method entails the use of our Brokerage System and sales professionals who find buyers as the crop is nearly finished. This ensures a rapid turnaround so that you get paid quickly.
