Across the nation, hemp farmers like the Hiatts are either changing what they are doing or leaving the industry.

 

 

The big bust

“Last year, nationwide, the amount of acres was down significantly from the year before,” said Sheldon Coleman, the CEO of Sunnyland Kansas in McPherson. “The numbers are all over the map, and I'm going to use an average, roughly 110,000 acres were licensed in 2019 and went down to about 45,000 acres in 2020 (nationwide).”

A San Miguel County hemp researcher plans to invest $2 million to legally grow marijuana on his 13-acre farm.

John Sedillo also anticipates hiring 30 to 40 employees, starting at $18 and $20 an hour.
