Last week, Native Prairie Hemp founder Bill Cook visited Midwest Hemp in Augusta, Kansas, to drop off hemp bales and pick up hemp hurd from CEO Sarah Stephens. We have enjoyed a collaboration with Midwest Hemp for a while, carrying other of their products, such as hemp protein powder and hemp seed oil. He got the opportunity to learn more about ways to use and incorporate hurd into daily life. Sarah is a wealth of knowledge on the topic, as well as a producer of high-quality hemp hurd and products, so she was the perfect person to talk to on the topic.
Her suggested uses include mulch for gardening, the deep litter method in chicken coops, and cat litter. Using hemp mulch is more than just long-lasting and eco-friendly; it also can keep pests away from gardens while being a natural insulator, protecting gardens from natural factors. In chicken coops, the deep litter method, when maintained correctly, can improve chicken health while saving time and money. Hemp bedding is safer for chickens and more absorbent than pine shavings used in coops, making hemp bedding the best option. Fine hemp hurd can even benefit cat owners! It is biodegradable, chemical-free, absorbent, non-clumping, and safer for cats than standard kitty litter. Overall, hemp hurd can benefit your garden and animals in significant ways while staying environmentally friendly! We would love to help you with all your hemp needs, so stop by our shop to purchase products or schedule a tour of our hemp fields!
