When Hemp was King

FairwaterHempA trip down memory lane for a Grand Daughter of a man who worked for The Fairwater Hemp Company in 1916!

So, not such a new idea after all .. 🙂

 

When hemp was king, my great-grandfather was a farmer. And so was his brother. Together they worked for Towne Miller’s Fairwater Hemp Company, which was in operation from April 1, 1916 to 1918. I never knew my great grandpa, but he’s one figure in history that I’d love to have dinner with!
