Wayne County farm takes aim at expanding hemp operation, educating community
When brothers Shawn and Josh Cutter proposed growing hemp at their traditional family farm in 2019, their sister and mother weren't convinced it was the right move.
Their 500-acre farm produced crops like alfalfa, corn and soybeans for decades, so adding a new plant with little knowledge of it was a gamble, but the family was quickly swayed.
At the time, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine had just passed a bill legalizing hemp with low THC (less than 0.3%) — the main psychoactive compound in cannabis — opening a new market in Ohio.
