Hemp Harvest Forum


Join the City of Moriarty & Campo de Oro for Hemp Harvest Forum, October 3, 2019 at the Moriarty Civic Center MORIARTY, NEW MEXICO September 13, 2019 —The City of Moriarty and Campo de Oro LLC are excited to announce and invite the surrounding East Mountain communities to the Hemp Harvest Forum presented at the Moriarty Civic Center in Moriarty, New Mexico, on October 3, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

The Hemp Harvest Forum is set as a dynamic educational venue to foster public dialogue about the state’s hemp program, sustainable hemp business practices and to inform the public about the environmental attributes of this crop and its consumer byproducts.  

Hemp farmers of the Estancia Valley and 30 other counties will harvest for the first time this century. The New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA) has issued 16 Hemp licenses in Torrance county. Hemp education outreach is critical for our communities to fully understand this iconic plant’s legal status, both state and federally under the 2018 Farm Bill, and also, it’s positive environmental and economic impacts. The NMDA and Agricultural Environmental Services Division, and the New Mexico Environment Department  have worked diligently to launch the hemp program in 2019, giving the opportunity for farmers, processors, distributors and associated businesses to build and steward this budding New Mexico industry for years to come.
