After spending relentless hours and personal expense perfecting the growing and agronomy of Hemp, Joe Federowich dreamed of building a Hemp fibre processing facility in Gilbert Plains. In 2009, Joe approached Lyall Bates (President of Hemp Sense Inc.) to collaborate and make this dream a reality. Sadly, Joe Federowich passed away on September 9, 2009. Joe’s dedication to the hemp industry will not be forgotten.
In 2017, we opened our 30,000 square foot, environmentally-friendly processing plant (a former seed processing facility) located just west of Gilbert Plains, Manitoba. At this facility, we use patented zero waste/zero water processes to produce environmentally friendly hemp products.
