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. Hemp can replace black oil and bio-fuels. Hemp produces bio-fuel more efficiently than maize, and it grows without fertilizers. Growing hemp adds nitrogen to the soil, actually improving it for future crops.

The Hemp Farm New Zealand is working on a decortication system that will revolutionize the way hemp is currently processed.  Once ready, we will have the most efficient food, fiber and cellulose production system ever created. We will be able to make anything that can be produced from oil, protein or cellulose. Plastic is made from crude black oil. Using hemp to make plastic instead means no oil spills, no drilling, and affordable biodegradable plastics. Growing hemp reduces greenhouse gases, so hemp plastic has a very low environmental footprint. Cellulose is used in 3D printers, so hemp cellulose can be used to make almost anything. Now that is a vision to get excited about!

We Thrive On Challenging Projects. They Produce Bigger Rewards In The End.

The 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.

Meet The Passionate Team Behind The Hemp Farm

Dave and Anne Jordan are a couple who embarked on a journey through their passion for health and well-being, which for them starts with the environment.

Disturbed by the amount of pollution showing up on the land and in the waterways, they felt compelled to find a solution. Research led them to soon learn that Hemp is one of the most beneficial plants on earth for cleaning up the soils, air and waterways. It is known as the “king” of the plant world and humanities best companion plant. It has been an essential part of human culture for over 10,000 years, serving as a super food, medicine, clothing, shelter and energy source for millions of people across the globe.

Dave and Anne established Hemp Farm New Zealand Limited and set about growing hemp crops to create awareness about hemp and all of its many amazing health benefits. They have been growing seed stocks and are diligently working on the processing equipment. Their mission is to enable industry with hemp based sustainable clean solutions to petrochemicals through providing raw and processed seed, fiber and hurd (cellulose).

They currently work with farmers and suppliers in Canada to offer the best quality USDA Certified Organic Canadian Hemp seed oil products which supports our growing efforts here in NZ.

The Hemp Farm NZ Ltd is working with farmers, researchers, environmentalists and many enthusiastic people to develop programs for health, ecological housing and ultimately environmental restoration.

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!
