Lily Hill Farm is tucked away on a beautiful hillside in the Green Mountains of Northern Vermont. We use organic and sustainable practices to grow our hemp because we firmly believe that anything you are putting in or on your body should be free of chemicals and pesticides. To show our commitment to environmental stewardship, our farm has been certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers.
Healthy plants start with healthy soil which is why we enrich our fields with organic fertilizers, biochar, and a variety of minerals. We deliver mycorrhizae and beneficial bacteria to the plants through our drip irrigation. This helps create a strong root system which make the nutrients in the soil more available to the plants.
In addition, we are big proponents of companion planting because other plants provide natural insecticides and fungicides for our hemp. The cannabis plant responds to companion planting with more vigorous growth, greater resistance to disease and pests and greater terpene production. We companion plant with chamomile, sunflowers, nasturtium and many others. We use clover as a cover crop; this helps to suppress weeds, manage soil erosion and enrich the soil with nitrogen. The best part is that we don't have to lay down a bunch of plastic to do the same job!
