SPRINGFIELD CENTER – The buzz from hemp is an economic one and Otsego County is starting to get it.
Last spring, the Canadian cannabis company, Canopy Growth, bought Stitzel’s Waterpoint Farm, which closed its dairy operations in 2017, and this fall will harvest its first hemp crop – 300 acres – worth – in mid-October.
The hemp will be dried and milled at the farm, then sent off-site to be processed for its cannabinoid or CBD oil – the non-hallucinogenic chemical used for numerous medical conditions and ailments in mid-October.
