Arbor Vita8 is proud to share our resources and expertise with individual farmers looking to grow hemp. Our Partner Farmer program allows us to serve you throughout the entire process, from seed selection to final sale of product. Not only that, but being a Partner Farmer means you’ll have our equipment at your disposal at no additional cost. Our goal is to help hemp farmers create a quality product. We use the right genetics, equipment and processes to ensure a profitable experience all around.
Selecting the right seeds and genetics
The first step for hemp farmers is to pick the right seeds. Arbor Vita8 offers land and soil testing to its Partner Farmers to ensure proper genetic selection for your land. We then extend wholesale pricing that can save you up to 60 percent on your seeds alone. We only work with the highest quality genetics, which leads to superior plant crops.
Cultivating the perfect plant
Even before you plant the seeds, Arbor Vita8 makes sure you have the right resources to successfully cultivate your crop. We offer irrigation inspection as well as support in preparing your field. As the farmer, you’re responsible for growing your plants, but we’re here to advise you on spacing, bedding, plastic application and more. We can even help you secure the best organic nutrients and set up an optimal pest control strategy.
Being a Partner Farmer means that as your plants grow, Arbor Vita8 continues to serve as your best resource for support. We can confer on crop health and provide tools for crop testing. Our experience means we’ve seen just about every situation you may face as a hemp farmer. We want to extend our working knowledge to you to keep your crop flourishing.
When the plants are ready, we bring in the big equipment, at no additional cost, to complete harvesting. Our dual-head combine allows us to harvest seed, stem and leaf all at once for higher yields of mass. Our equipment also uses less CO2 to get the job done to better serve the environment. Our bailer completes this essential task on site as well. Proper bailing means the quality of your mass won’t degrade during transport. We make sure your product stays safe, preventing the potential for mold and other damaging elements to invade.
Once the bails are ready, our trucking partner picks up your crop, at no additional cost. It’s then transported to our facility in Phenix City, Alabama.
Drying and storing
Arbor Vita8 has one of the three largest dryers in the country when it comes to processing hemp. Our high-output system produces quality biomass. Not only can we dry up to 70,000 pounds per hour, but our facility in Phenix City is large enough to store biomass as long as necessary.
With a state-of-the-art, high-capacity extractor, Arbor Vita8 can pull the lucrative oils from your biomass at a rate of 5,000 pounds per day. We can create crude oil if that’s currently of interest to manufacturers. We can also take the process one step farther and end up with distillate or t-free distillate. Demand influences what we extract in order to give our Partner Farmers the best return on their crop.
Our dedicated sales team helps conclude the process for our Partner Farmers. We work with our network of manufacturers to complete the sale. Product sells at market price to then go on to make CBD and CBG items throughout the country. Partner Farmers are then eligible for up to 25 percent in profit spilt on the sale of their finished product.
Dedicating our resources to your experience
Our unique Partner Farmer program gives you a leg up in planting your next hemp crop. Every step of the way, Arbor Vita8 gives you access to our expertise, facilities, connections and equipment. All at no cost. We help guide you through the entire process, from seed selection to the final sale. It’s a win-win, but we’re limited to how many farmers we can admit each year into the program.
