Farm to Health Organics

Farm to Health OrganicsAt Farm to Health Organics, growing organic hemp to create high-quality products is a family affair. Owner Alissa Gardner grows her hemp crops on a heritage farm in Rowley, Iowa, that has been in her husband’s family for more than 150 years, a fact she’s proud to tout when promoting her hemp oils and soft gels. 
 
Gardner is part business owner, part educator. Many people are unfamiliar with the health benefits that hemp oil offers, such as promoting sleep, relieving stress, and decreasing pain, and Gardner says she enjoys educating them.
 
“It’s important that people have a local option for hemp products that they know and trust,” she says. “Our organic hemp goes through a seven-step process to ensure the highest level of efficacy and we take great care in creating all of our products.”
 
Networking with other businesses has helped Gardner to grow her own. This year, she collaborated with Cedar Ridge Winery to create a hemp-infused cocktail that was featured on the winery’s bar menu, and she participated in the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance’s annual Market After Dark farmers market in downtown Cedar Rapids. 
 
Gardner also speaks with ag classes at local community colleges, collaborates with Iowa State University during the growing season, and offers public farm tours to promote hemp as a crop. “Face-to-face interaction with students, partners, and customers has been key to the growth of my business,” she says. 
 
Recently, Farm to Health Organics obtained its USDA certification, an endorsement of product quality and efficacy, and started working with a wholesale distributor to meet customer demand.

This holiday season, Gardner hopes that Cedar Rapids residents will shop locally and consider purchasing hemp-based products for gifts and stocking stuffers. Farm to Health Organics products are sold online and inside the CSPS Building in Cedar Rapids’ NewBo District.
