State’s first hemp farmer is in Ledyard

Recreational pot didn’t pass in this legislative session but farmers in Connecticut now have the right to grow hemp.

In just a few days the pallets in the greenhouse at Town Farm LLC in Ledyard could be filled with what is the start of the first hemp plants grown in the state in decades.

“The goal is smaller plants in the northeast because we’re not sure of the weather,” said farmer Dylan Williams who spoke with Congressman Joe Courtney (D-Connecticut) at his Ledyard farm.
