Lily Hill Farm is tucked away on a beautiful hillside in the Green Mountains of Northern Vermont. We use organic and sustainable practices to grow our hemp because we firmly believe that anything you are putting in or on your body should be free of chemicals and pesticides. To show our commitment to environmental stewardship, we received our Clean Green certification in 2018 and our Vermont Organic certification in 2019 and 2020.
Healthy plants start with healthy soil which is why we enrich our fields with organic fertilizers, biochar, and a variety of minerals. We deliver mycorrhizae and beneficial bacteria to the plants through our drip irrigation. This helps create a strong root system which make the nutrients in the soil more available to the plants.
In addition, we are big proponents of companion planting because other plants provide natural insecticides and fungicides for our hemp. The cannabis plant responds to companion planting with more vigorous growth, greater resistance to disease and pests and greater terpene production. We companion plant with chamomile, sunflowers, nasturtium and many others. We use clover as a cover crop; this helps to suppress weeds, manage soil erosion and enrich the soil with nitrogen. The best part is that we don't have to lay down a bunch of plastic to do the same job!
After harvest, the CBD and other cannabinoids are extracted from the hemp so they can be added to our products. Our CBD oils and salves are made in small batches at Lily Hill's headquarters and our softgels are made in an FDA approved, GMP-compliant facility. We use as many organic ingredients as possible--our salves are even made with the calendula, chamomile and arnica flowers grown on our farm! In an effort to reduce plastic, most of our packaging is made from glass (which we encourage you to recycle!).
The Lily Hill team hopes you enjoy our products as much as we love creating them!
