Family Business: Boat Chats with Ben and Peter Edwards

Ben and Peter Edwards are eighth generation farmers here at the Schoppee Farm. When Ben decided to re-start their family farm and use the old fields to grow hemp, his brother Peter was his first call. At the time Peter was working off-shore as a merchant marine engineer and after that call traveled home to Maine for "few months" to get the farm off the ground and running. 18 months later and Peter remains on the farm, full-time.

In this video Ben and Peter talk briefly about how Peter became involved and what the first year of farming has been like. If you would like to learn more about how the farm started check out "Why did we start a hemp farm?"
