The Facts

Why We Love Hemp

It’s our hero – and we’re here to spread the good word. Not only is it one of the most sustainable, planet-friendly plants around – it’s also one of the most nutritious, with super seeds that are perfect powerhouses of goodness.

Hemp + Health

  • Good Fats

    Positively overflowing with Omega-3, 6 and 9 – and you can’t get better fats than these. Say hello to healthy hearts, brain boosting and great skin, hair and immune systems.

  • Protein Power

    Complete protein that comes entirely from plants. No whey! With all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential ones, it’s pretty good stuff.

  • Fab Fibre

    Packed with healthy fibre that’ll keep your digestion tip-top, and help stave off heart disease and diabetes.

  • Vitamins & Minerals

    With Vitamin E for healthy skin and nails, iron for healthy blood and potassium to help your organs do their thing, hemp hits the nutritional jackpot.

A C02-Capturing Champion

Hemp plants breathe in four times more carbon dioxide than trees – think of them like little vacuum cleaners for the air.

No Waste

From the stalk to the seeds, the flowers and the leaves, every single part of a hemp plant can be put to good use. Talk about setting a good example!

No Pesticide Pride

Hemp is such a naturally strong plant that it doesn’t need any pesticides or herbicides, which means cleaner air, land and water.

An Epic Earth-Enricher

Through its deep, strong roots, hemp replenishes the soil with far more nutrients than it uses up.

Birds & Bees

These tall, leafy plants make a splendid sanctuary for all sorts of wildlife, and their flowers are beloved by bees.

Hemp FAQs

  • QWHY DON’T YOU USE HEMP PLASTIC? V

    If we could we would, however there are very limited materials food and drink can be packaged in, and hemp is not yet an option! When it is, we’ll be the first one signed up, until then we are continuing to search for more sustainable packaging options.

  • QHOW DO YOU MAKE HEMP MILK? V

    In the most part, it’s a secret. But we have made a gif about it, here. It’s not great.

  • QWHERE DO YOU MAKE YOUR PRODUCTS? V

    At our farm in Devon! We don’t grow it there, but whole seed arrives at the farm, which all of our products are made from. We never buy in any type of hemp derivative.

  • QDO YOU GROW YOUR HEMP IN THE UK V

    We source our seeds from a number of different suppliers, in the past it has sat within the UK, at the moment we are sourcing 85% of our seeds from France, and 15% from China. By May 2019 we’ll be sourcing 100% of our seeds from France. The reason for this is because although we would ideally like to reduce the distance our seeds have to travel, and support British farmers, we are also committed to providing you with the highest quality of product without charging extortionate prices.

  • QWHAT DOES HEMP TASTE LIKE? V

    We like to say like a cross between a pine nut and a sunflower seed – lightly nutty however obviously free from nuts!

  • QWHAT IS HEMP? V

    Hemp, also known as “cannabis sativa” is a plant. Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years, most notably for ropes for naval vessels and for paper. The different parts of the plant have different uses – for example we use the seeds, however hemp is capable of producing hundreds of crucial resources including clothing, building materials, biofuel and more.

  • QWHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP, CBD AND MARIJAUNA? V

    Hemp, otherwise known as “cannabis sativa” is a plant in the cannabis family, well known for it’s cousin marijuana. However, unlike marijuana, hemp contains no THC (the bit gets you high) and you’ll only find CBD in the leaves – none of either in the seeds which are the bits which we use!
