I hope this creates a whole lot of new jobs and new revenue for the farm. Farmers in America are in bad shape. … I’m trying to do my part to get that changed. Growing these hemp plants should be in the $2 million per year income range, and my net should be 40%–50%. I think the best year I had with chickens was when I netted $7,000.
