Monarch Hill Hemp Farm and CBD Botanicals
We are cannabis producers - farmers and prcessors. We organically grow our hemp on Bob's family farmin Eau Claire Wisconsin. We are a team of two, each with our individual strengths and duties that luckily compliment each other. We named our business because of the wonderful Monarch butterflies on the farm and we have preserved large patches of milkweed on the property to keep them alive and healthy. We also planted several acres of flowering habitat specifically made to maintain and attract butterflies. It's been just announced the Monarchs are now on the endangered list. Very sad and I hope that changes like it did for the Bald Eagle and other species.
We are true believers in the powerful medicine of plants in general and especially pleased about the mighty cannabinoids in hemp. It is a wonderful gift to humankind. We are very excited to be growing such a worthwhile crop that will be such a benefit for many people.
