  • 2nd Lancaster County Hemp Meetings at Yoders

    This was the 2nd event - the year before I had invited Robert Rex of the Friendly Chameleon Paper Company to speak to the farmers - this event I was honored John Howell came down and Jean Laprise - that year the President of New Holland Ford provided $100 to offset my cost - he couldn't attend but sent his top 2 engineers who listened to Kennex Jean's Laprise talk about using modified John Deere equipment to harvest their hemp. That's changed in 2015.

  • My hemp message

    Folks I hope this information presented helps you understand a little bit more about a crop that hasn't been taught in our public school much. It does notcontain every fact & does stress the Hempzels history from the late 1990's until now. This time line will continue to be updated & eventually formatted so you can print it out easily - be patient. You can see for yourself what this amazing plant has gone through and how politics corrupted our understanding growing up and reduced our civil liberties. The real confusion started in the early 1930's with the Federal Government referring  to cannabis whether sativa, indica, rudelis  in racial,  derogatory slang terms "marijuana". Prior to that the Federal Government & USDA had hemp listed in the farm yearbooks as any other needed crop. Cannabis was medicine or recreation & hemp was industrial and the hearty crop that produced fiber, seed & oil for a growing free nation. So start saying "know" right now & verify this information for yourself. - Contact your local congressional representative to Co-Sponsor andy   "Industrial Farming Act "....     Thank You!

     With a team rich in knowledge, please contact us if you need a speaker for your next event.

  • New idea to explain a Hemp Pretzel..

  • October 2015 Industrial Hemp Bill SB50 out of Committee

    FOX 43 -

    Tuesday 10/27/15 Senator Schwank's committee passed the Indusrial Hemp Act;  Fox 43

    HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Shawn House stands at the bottom of the Pennsylvania Capitol steps with a smile on his face and an empty bag of pretzels in his hands. "Hempzel's Pretzels," he says. "It's a mix of hemp and pretzels." It's also completely legal. House, who runs the Lancaster Trading Company and it's Hempzel's Pretzels brand, uses industrial hemp in his products every day. The hemp he uses comes from the same cannabis species as the more familiar drug, and the plant it grows from looks similar to the drug, but it contains minimal doses of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the substance which leads to the high marijuana smokers feel. "Knowledge is powerful," Shawn says. "Just because you have seed, doesn't mean you have weed."

  • Pennsylvania Farm Show 2015

    Our 10th year and I think the last years we've sown a lot of seeds that have taken root. Saturday Senator Folmer (R) and Senator Schwank(D) both presented SB50 the Pennsylvania Industrial Farm Bill Act - taking the Federal Governments persmission to get pilot programs into the States who want to see where hemp fills in. Both Senators stopped by the booth to show their constituents and Pennsylvania Citizens what we have to look forward to as the laws prohibiting hemp farming are repealed.

    thanks to both this is a Bi-Partisan Effort
     Sunday or

     

    Monday our good friends at WEEE radio Mike interviewed Shawn for an update on what's been going on - a lot of folks heard the interview and came down to get Hempzelized at our booth 5000-1 in the Pennsylvania Market Place.

    This year we no longer had the Pepsi fridge but that kept me to 2 booths vs 3 to show folks what we had to offer.

    We officially had our Hempzels(tm) Soft 8 Pack Pretzel Bags finished the day before the show started - the bakery baked the freshly baked hemp swirls and we loaded up the freezer & sampled and sold a few 3 pack hot soft Swirls & a good amount of frozen swirls got taken home. Hempzel Customer Missions ? ask their local stores to pick up the product. (pictures) (videos)
