About High Plains Crop Production, LLC
The idea for High Plains was formed by Brandon Burchett in 2013. His interest in CBD was sparked out of a desire to help his community. His neighbor’s children were suffering from a rare form of epilepsy, and they needed help. Brandon began working with cannabis to create a better breed of plant, a high-CBD, low-THC variety that could address these people’s needs. With the passage of the Farm Bill in 2014, Brandon recognized a further opportunity, to bring a new cash crop to farmers in the southeast who were in need of a new source of income with the downturn of tobacco, and High Plains Crop Production was formed. We offer farmers our tested genetics and tried and true growing methods to help them achieve a better, more sustainable crop. High Plains has continued to grow throughout the nation over the following years, working with more than 60 farmers in 6 states. However, we never dreamed of being able to reach the market on this wide of a scale prior to the formation of our strategic partnership with EZ-CLONE. With their help, we hope to be able to provide our USDA-compliant genetics to farmers everywhere, offering them a better product, and expanding the care mission that inspired the formation of High Plains from the very beginning.
