The British Hemp Co


How it started...
The British Hemp Company is the brainchild of MD Steve Glover, who set up the multi award winning Severn Project in Bristol to provide education training and employment for socially excluded individuals through the commercial production of salads and herbs.

An accidental farmer, he quickly learned how to grow salad and herbs, and the business grew. Twelve years later, he applied for an industrial hemp license, and with a few valuable lessons under his belt, Steve used his knowledge of all things hemp to set up a consultancy, working with UK hemp farmers. This experience helped create a vision that led to the formation of The British Hemp Company…

British-Grown Hemp...
None of our hemp is imported. This means that the most important ingredient of our business is our farmers. Their farms cover a total of 250 acres across twelve locations throughout the UK – from Totnes to Aberdeen, and South Wales to Norfolk.
Our farmers grow Finola, a new generation of high yielding hemp, without the use of any pesticides or herbicides, and using traditional farming methods. Harvest is in late September, when the seed is cleaned and dried on the farms and then brought to our mill in the South West. Which we’re proud to say is the UK’s first hemp processing centre that is dedicated to working with British farmers.
