Back in 2014, Colorado famously passed Amendment 64, legalizing recreational cannabis in Colorado and allowing for growing hemp. Serendipitously, the Farm Bill also passed in the same year, giving the Centennial State a five-year head start of hemp cultivation experience.
Salt Creek Ranch, a family-run operation in Plateau Valley on Colorado’s Western Slope, converted a section of their cattle ranch to hemp production in 2015, shortly after Amendment 64 was passed and the 2014 Farm Bill came into effect.
One of the first hemp farms in the region, mother and daughter team Fran and Margaret MacKenzie combine organically primed soil, healthy cover crops and pure mountain air with unrivaled experience to produce only the highest quality hemp and hemp extract products. Theirs is a vertically integrated, hands-on approach to hemp farming, from daily toil in the fields to harvesting crops by hand.
Not only are they committed to making only the very best products, Fran and Margaret are also committed to sustainable, regenerative farming, a dedication to organic ingredients and a belief in the power of plant-based wellness.
As a result of all their hard work, the team is highly regarded in the hemp industry. In 2017, Margaret was the first female ‘Featured Farmer’ for the Hemp History Week campaign. She is also a board member of the Colorado Hemp Industries Association, part of the Colorado CHAMP Initiative and co-founders of Hemp on the Slope, hosting immersive events on their farm and welcoming people to enjoy a field to table experience like no other. Margaret is also the Hemp Advisor to the country of Antigua and Barbuda, helping to develop and steer a thriving hemp industry in the Caribbean nation.
