About The Hemp Farm

Hemp To Enable Industry With Sustainable Solutions.

The Hemp Farm began with just a handful of seeds, and a very big dream. The dream was to create a whole new industry in New Zealand based on hemp. Growing hemp can boost the economy and revolutionize life for everyone in New Zealand, and the world. There are no limits to the uses for hemp when you have vision.

HempFarm’s Vision

  • Continue to develop harvesting technology
  • Further develop processing facilities for hemp seed, fiber and cellulose (hurd).
  • Continue to work with Universities and research institutions for the use of hemp materials in industrial processors.
  • Continue to develop relationships with growers, processors and markets globally.
  • Provide industries and consumers with raw and processed materials of hemp.
  • Promote hemp as the largest available commodity.
  • Meet the needs of humanity for food, biomass and fiber.
  • Develop a safer, cleaner environment for improved global health and well-being.

Fiber Production

Game-changing innovation in hemp fiber

World's Strongest Fiber

Our new decorticator is the first in the world to remove the fiber from fresh stalks, producing one of the strongest fibers in the world. The decorticator can be mounted on a harvester, so both seed & fiber are removed in one pass.    

Cellulose Production

The world needs more cellulose now than ever.

A modern material

Cellulose is used to make paper products, fabrics, plastics, biofuel and 3D printed objects. The demand is higher than ever, and hemp is the most efficient way of filling the need due to it’s fast growing speed and low reliance on fertilizers and pesticides

Healthy Food

Safe and nutritious food for everyone

Safe food for all

Our modern diets have become depleted in essential nutrients such as omega fatty acids and healthy proteins. Hemp contains these nutrients, including the unique edestin protein that is readily-available and very close in structure to human blood globulin.

Our Target For 2020

Meet The Passionate Team Behind The Hemp Farm

A family team who embarked on a journey to use hemp to transform the health of people and the environment.

Disturbed by the amount of pollution showing up on the land and in the waterways, the founders felt compelled to find a solution. Research led them to discover that hemp is one of the most beneficial plants on earth for cleaning up the soils, air and waterways. Hemp has been an essential part of human culture for over 10,000 years, serving as a nutrient-dense food, medicine, clothing, shelter, and energy source for millions of people across the globe. HempFarm has been working since 2008 to return hemp to the people, and to allow hemp to be used in all its forms for modern living. Technology has come a long way since hemp’s prohibition, so now the only limit to hemp’s potential is the human imagination.

Meet April Harwood – Smith our wonderful Aromatherapist. She is responsible for our delicious, nourishing, therapeutic skin care range.

In 2008 I completed my Diploma in Aromatherapy and my Diploma in Holistic Massage. This, combined with living and traveling abroad I have come to be very passionate and aware of natural health. In my opinion, good health is our biggest asset, and therefore we must really look after ourselves to maintain optimal health. When we feel good, when we feel healthy – we look good – we look healthy!!  A huge part of feeling good is having good skin, and as much as I believe in a good diet and lifestyle to maintain this, I truly believe that good skin care is so important too.

Our biggest organ is our skin and it is so super absorbent, I believe we can take advantage of this by putting nutrient rich and 100% natural substances onto our skin which will therefore nourish us externally as well as internally, contributing to maintaining optimal health. No matter what we put on our skin, it only takes 26 seconds for it to reach our blood stream!

Through my study as well as plenty of personal research and skin seminars (including Dr. Haushka) I have enjoyed experimenting for myself and creating the products for The Hemp Farm NZ Ltd which are both perfect for our skin, perfect for our body!
