Winona's Hemp News

MIIN GIIZIS - BLUEBERRY MOON 2019

Winona’s Hemp and Heritage Farm is growing.  The winter seemed endless for us here in Northern Minnesota, temperatures ranged far, and the storms were brutal.  We are grateful for the warmth of this time.  

Spring is here, summer now, and the crops are in. More are coming.  Cannabis, or hemp is one of many crops we grow here, to produce cordage, and soon textiles.

This year, we are growing fifty female CBD plants, all to offer food, textiles and health products.  We also grow corn, beans, squash, potatoes, tobacco and a host of garden vegetables.  We are interested in growing food for future generations- Indigenous foods, biodiverse foods, and foods in a time of climate change.   Read more
