Hempstead Project Heart

A Wisconsin Tradition

Uncovering all the facts about the rich history of Wisconsin’s Hemp Industry led us from the archives of the Wisconsin Historical Society, University of Wisconsin-Madison Steenbock Library, the United States Department of Agriculture National Agriculture Library and Access Newspapers to various small museums/historical societies in the towns scattered throughout Wisconsin.

From this research, we’ve compiled and documented the Wisconsin Hemp Industry from 1908 all the way to present, including significant events that happened throughout the country! Why Wisconsin? Discover the state’s untold hemp history!
