What’s it all about?

The food system is perishing, the soil is suffering. We need real regenerative organic and sustainable solutions, we believe that’s hemp!

Hempen Organic has been cultivating organic hemp since 2015. Our collective and friends have been on a mission to seek wider support for hemp’s position as a key agricultural crop in the UK. We cannot do this alone, we want to work with a network of hemp growers, producers and businesses to revive hemp to be a thriving agricultural crop once again. Currently, we are in a weird 100-year blip in the long history of hemp cultivation. Hempen has been approached, supported by and has sought partnerships with pioneer organic, agroforestry and biodynamic farmers and landowners to revive this ancient and holistic crop as more people become aware of hemp’s multitude of benefits.

Hempen cultivates organic hemp for the benefit of the land, its people and to bring back a sense of local production and community. We are part of a growing hemp movement, we look forward to hosting hemp events to encourage and share knowledge of hemp cultivation.

Programme coming soon!

Watch this space!! Follow Hempen @hempenorganic on socials, or sign up to our newsletter to see the programme first!

In this meeting we will discuss the importance of cultivating hemp as part of a crop rotation, organic cultivation and benefits of hemp for the soil. Followed by an introduction to the formation of the Hemp Growers Guild.

For the afternoon there will be break-out sessions. One with regard to sharing information with those who are reviving hemp fibre for textiles and natural material industries. Another for sharing insight into hemp cultivation for natural construction and material cultures. The third session will be to discuss the legalities of hemps healing properties as food, and share current developments in producing hemp seed products.

With time allocated to have the space to network.

Where?

Hempen, Hardwick, Path Hill Farm, Path Hill, Oxfordshire, RG8 7RE.

Hempen is located in the beautiful organic community of the Hardwick Estate. Follow the little one way farm track that leads to Hempen. Our farm is made up of a small cottage, gardens, polytunnel, large agricultural barn and business premises that produce our organic hemp & CBD products.

It’s a 50 min walk or 30 min bike cycle from Pangbourne Station / 37 min walk or 15/20 mins bike cycle from Whitchurch. There is a hill on Path Hill 😉

Keep dogs on leads, and you’re responsible for cleaning up after them. Please keep a distance from children & any children’s spaces.

Accessibility

As it’s a farm site, bear in mind that the ground here is uneven. We only have a few solid paths, instead we have lots of woodchip and grass paths. However, we do have an accessible compost toilet. Please let us know if you have any specific needs as you arrive.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Hempen Roundel Logo - no words - green
What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of 100+ Cannabinoid compounds present in each hemp plant. There are over 400+ compounds found in hemp plant varieties. CBD Oils have become so excited as they contain a lot of valuable nutrients. Full & Broad Spectrum CBD Oils mean you are gaining all the valuable compounds present and not just isolated CBD.

 

Recent studies have shown that Cannabinoids are naturally created by the human body, we even create CBD, working in harmony with our own internal Endocannabinoid System, close to our Immune and Nervous Systems. In fact, all mammals have an Endocannabinoid System. The function of the Endocannabinoid System is to bring the body into balance, officially called Homeostasis, as it acts as a cell-communication system all over the body. CBD works with our Endocannabinoid System, particularly supporting our stress responses, which are overly stimulated daily. This science is proving why lots of people use plant based CBD strong products to aid overall wellbeing and calming effects. 

 

Plants are here to support us when we need them. CBD products provide a natural and harmonious plant top-up to aid your mind and body, helping your Endocannabinoid System to function well.

 

You can find out more information about CBD here.

What can I use CBD for?

CBD rich products are soothing for the mind, heart, and body, bringing a sense of peace to your daily stress responses.

 

As herbalists, we cannot provide medical advice. Our CBD products promote health, stimulate your own healing, and we can consult when contacted via email at shop@hempen.co.uk or call us O1184 O5OO95.

 

CBD rich products are sold as ‘cosmetics’ and ‘food supplements’ we are restricted by not being able to give any medical advice regarding Cannabinoid benefits. There are many peer-reviewed studies into the myriad of benefits, this includes anxiety, inflammation, and epilepsy – though more research is needed. We recommend doing your own research online, we share some light on what CBD is here.

Do hemp products contain THC? Will it get me high?

Simply put, hemp is a variety of the Cannabis plant that has been bred to have negligible low levels of THC, which is short for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the more psychoactive compound. Hemp cannot get you high.

 

Instead, CBD products made from hemp promote other natural beneficial compounds such as Cannabinoids, one being CBD, that are really good for your health. The flower is pressed or extracted into a valuable CBD rich oil with immunity boosting, and calming properties to name but a few. We also mill the stem into a relaxing tea.

 

Hemp products made from the seeds such as the Whole Hemp Seeds, Hemp Protein Powder and Hemp Oil contain hardly any, trace amounts, of Cannabinoids, however are a superfood in their own right. The mighty seeds contain all the essential amino acids your body needs and does not produce! 

 

UK regulations permit only strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant that are very low in THC (less than 0.01% in products). This means you won’t feel any psychoactive effects, so that means none of our products will get you ‘high’. All our CBD products are independently lab tested to ensure the finest quality and to meet government regulations.

How are Hempen products made?

Hempen is a not-for-profit worker’s co-operative. Our profits are reinvested in our mission, not shareholder pockets, we are led by and owned by our workers.

 

We consult and partner with farmers across the British Isles to increase the cultivation of hemp. Based on the Hardwick Estate, our farm is part laboratory, part community, part homestead, part educational space, part wellbeing hub that continues to evolve and inspire. Nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Oxfordshire, check out our Hempen Events to visit!

 

Our worker’s co-op produce and innovate organic products from hemp cosmetics and hemp based superfoods, on organic farmland certified by the Soil Association. 

 

Having control over the end-to-end process, from seed to shelf, means we can guarantee unparalleled quality of our products. They’ll always be produced from 100% organic hemp, non-GMO, free of harmful chemicals, heavy metals and synthetic cannabinoids, supporting UK & British Isles farmers.

Are your hemp and CBD products organic, vegan and/or gluten free?

Yes, yes and yes!

All of our food products are certified organic by the Soil Association. We believe food should be organic and nutritious, especially if you’re seeking products to improve your health.

 

Hemp is naturally vegan, we are a vegan brand, so all our products are too. In fact, hemp seeds and hemp oil are packed with essential fatty acids including the ‘golden ratio’ of omega 3,6 & 9 great for brain health, it’s the alternative to consuming fish! We use Hemp Seed Oil in all our CBD products. Hemp Seeds, are also a full protein. As we see it, the growth of hemp supports the growth of the vegan movement.

 

Hemp naturally does not contain gluten, therefore our products are gluten-free! The combine machinery is shared with other plant crops, even though it is cleaned we cannot guarantee use for coeliacs.

Can I come and see your farm?

Absolutely. We welcome volunteers all year round for anything from a day visit to one week with accommodation. Take a look at our volunteering page for more information, and to apply. Please note, we work Monday-Friday. Also check our Hempen Events for a visit!
