Monarch Hill Hemp Farm and CBD Botanicals
We are a family farm located in the Chippewa Valley in Western Wisconsin. The farm earned it's name because we have preserved large patches of milkweed on the property and are fortunate to enjoy a plethora of monarch butterflies flying about all summer. We are true believers in the powerful medicine of plants in general and especially pleased about the mighty compounds in CBD 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. We have done our homework in hemp; including endless hours of internet research, multiple trips to Colorado, Oregon, and California, attended hemp conventions and seminars, toured greenhouses and hemp farms, and spoke with people with all kinds of experiences all over the country.
