Local farmers growing hemp for first time

James Osbourne and Daniel Simms have broken away from traditional crops and turned to something new this year – hemp. 

According to Simms, they decided to jointly grow hemp in January because they were looking for other options to add to their harvest this year. 

“Me personally, I’m trying to find a different way to make money instead of raising tobacco,” Simms said.
