Standing at Old Mud Creek Farm LLC in Hudson, Columbia County, U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer today announced his support for the Hemp Farming Act of 2018. Schumer said the bill could help unlock hemp’s full potential as an agricultural commodity in Columbia, Greene and Rensselaer Counties, and across Upstate New York, by removing it from a federal list of controlled substances. Farms such as old Mud Creek Farm LLC, have partnered with affiliated growers and the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets to understand the best agricultural practices and market potential for various types of industrial hemp. These farms and the State of New York would benefit greatly from his legislation and would be able to greatly enhance their production and research efforts.
