Bedmaker becomes the UK’s largest hemp grower
Fifth-generation family bedmaker Harrison Spinks has confirmed its expansion into new North Yorkshire farmland to support its growth and sustainability plans, which will increase the company’s hemp production.
The new Ryther-based farmland spans 80 acres and will be used to increase the company’s production of industrial hemp. The increase in hemp production will see the company producing in excess of 1000 tonnes of hemp straw annually, making Harrison Spinks the largest grower of industrial hemp in the UK.
Hemp fibre, a key component of the company’s mattresses, is one of the strongest natural fibres – it is used in Harrison Spinks’ fillings and is known for its fresh and absorbent properties.
