A key aspect of this model is the strategic partnership we have with the 40 Acre Co-op Trust.
The 40-Acre Co-op Trust is a membership-based cooperative supporting socially disadvantaged farmers by providing technical assistance, training, legal support and market access to industrial hemp market. Our 400 members include farmers across the US who are committed to our mission of growing profitable and sustainable farming enterprises. This partnership makes us unique by allowing us to capitalize on specific human, social and financial capital that most other hemp businesses lack. PHPG is committed to a three-year plan which includes developing, cultivating and processing industrial hemp in rural and urban areas. Our vertical hemp business model includes owning and distributing our own products in addition to processing and distributing high-quality industrial CBD products for the national and international hemp market. Our “Tri-Crop production model includes the production of hemp fiber, hemp, foods, and hemp nutraceuticals. We have the vision, innovation and operational efficiency to strategically pursue these three growing segments and invite Enterprise Hemp to explore ways to engage in this dynamic opportunity.

Opportunity: We are seeking to change the game in US agriculture while investing real social equity back into our farming system. PHPG is poised to capitalize on the industrial hemp market by utilizing it’s network of highly trained, experienced and committed farmers who collectively have tillable acres exceeding the 1000’s. It is Projected that the U.S. hemp market will exceed thirty billion dollars by 2025 and we believe PHPGs’ network of farms, vertical business model and its ag-technical system will allow us to be extremely profitable and efficient while not losing any quality in our end products. We estimate our margins to be well over 30% in industrial hemp but our tri-crop processing will create additional revenue streams thus increasing our bottom line. Join us in this leading edge movement supporting socially disadvantaged farmers, creating a green economy , and putting the culture back in AgriCulture.
