I was curious if growers on the western side of the state were still having problems finding processors. If so how much biomass are you sitting on? I was planning on setting up a small scale processing operation for my own harvest next year but I would also be interested in scaling up if there's a demand. My plan is to process distillate as my end product. I would be interested in hearing from growers and any retail product manufacturers near the Quad Cities area to see if I could help fill in some holes in the supply chain.
What hemp strains are approved to grow in Illinois? Are growers allowed to deviate from the list provided when applying for license?
