This is the processing facility designed to operate two different types of processing equipment, that will service the growers providing raw kenaf and industrial hemp fiber and core and the buyers of the type and specifications of resource material needed to produce their products.
The first type of processing equipment will take fresh stalks of kenaf and industrial hemp and separate the short and long fibers from the wood core. Providing ideal material for textile industries, animal bedding, mulch and composting, hempcrete and kenafcrete, particle board, bio-char etc.
The second type of processing equipment will take harvested industrial hemp and kenaf that has been harvested in the field with silage equipment and turns this material into powder of preselected size. This processed material is ideal for the plastics industry, paper industry, food and cosmetics.
The lab as separate from this facility will function as a USDA approved lab to certify the powder servicing our food and cosmetic industry customers. In addition our lab will have an R&D section for new technology.
This organization will specialize in building structures designed and built using bamboo, hempcrete or kenafcrete, lime sealers and insulation bats made from the fibers of industrial hemp or kenaf.

A specialized organization filling in the needs of critical design factors based on environmental watershed considerations, and integrated with specialized training and equipment for our demonstration site and to service our farmers landscape as needed.
The key-line plow is one of these specialized pieces of equipment that is needed from time to time in various scenarios.
