WOOD-TV reports that The Hemp Train is inviting the public to come pick and harvest their own hemp from plants growing in their Greenville field on Saturday, Oct 3rd and opening their fields for U-Pick Oct 4-13:
“I think it’ll be the first U-pick hemp field in Michigan,” owner Danny Bailo said. “I think for a lot of people, this is going to be the first chance in their entire life to walk through a field of cannabis.”
…“We do all the hard work for you,” Bailo’s wife Kristina said. “We grow it, we plant it and then you get to come and pick it and then dry it and cure it.”
From there, she said the options of how to use it are endless.
“You can smoke it, which is what most people do with the flower,” she said about the CBD extract. “You can make teas, you can make butter, which opens up the doors to make any bake goods.”
While the U-pick festival will likely draw those already interested in the cannabis and hemp community, they also see this as an opportunity introduce and educate those unfamiliar with the industry.
“We also have vendors (coming),” Kristina said. “We have a CBD expert that’s going to be at one of the vending tables.”
The U-pick festival will also have vendors, live music, pumpkins and other vendors selling a variety of CBD products. Visit The Hemp Train website for more about the event. They will also be opening their fields for U-Pick every day from October 4-13, 2020.
