Josh Helberg – St. Cloud, MN
Founder Josh Helberg was intrigued by Industrial Hemp as a building product called HempCrete.Because Helberg thought it could help diversify his exterior companies. He researched industrial hemp for about 4 1/2 years ago and started going to different hemp conferences all over the country. Kentucky, Colorado and Canada to name a few. He learned of the amazing potential of industrial hemp and the possibility to get back into his roots and farm his family’s land with Hemp. Helberg grew up on a small dairy farm in Stevens County, MN.
Helberg found out if he wanted to grow hemp he would have to create new markets for hemp. This is difficult because of all the different products you can create and over regulation of industrial hemp.
Helberg was also an advocate for hemp, talking to his State Representatives and Senators. Helberg worked along side the Farmers Union and Farm Bureau to help get a pilot program approved in Minnesota. To this day Helberg helps raise awareness by talking to politicians about industrial hemp’s potential value for Minnesota Farmers and economy.
