  • Texas Healthy Homes (Tim White & Team) - Tim and his team will be showing off their newest hemp blocks and plaster finishes!

  • Brian Ochsner - Discussing economic trends and the push for hemp. One of the biggest factors that affect hemp and other farms - but don't seem to talk about enough - are the economic trends in the US and around the world.  Because of government subsidies and insurance, I think a lot of farmers don't give enough thought to these trends... and how they are (and will) affect their operations now and in the future.  When I look at the big picture trends of China, India and Russia as the top 3 wheat-producing nations in the world... Russia is the #1 wheat-exporting nation... and Brazil is the top corn exporting nation.... American grain farmers don't feed the world anymore, and can't rely on foreign exports to hold a "floor" under grain prices.  Plus, we have inflation that's not going away and a food production and distribution system where the average distance from producer to consumer is 1,500 miles. This means that transportation is a big part of the price a consumer pays at the grocery store. Inflation also will affect the price of imported goods, like plastics and clothing. Pivoting to an alternative crop like industrial hemp.  Hemp can also help us produce clothing, plastics and other products here in the US, and probably at a comparable price.

  • Kathie M. Rondeau - Kathie is showing off her custom hemp fiber products.
