Former Chicken Farmers Switch To Growing Hemp



“We decided that we would grow hemp and go from killing animals to growing something, from destroying things to creating things.”

With help from Mercy For Animals’ Transfarmation project, the Halley family began their transition away from raising chickens. In 2020, they harvested their first acre of hemp on their family farm in Texas.

  1. I absolutely love seeing this transformation. From destroying/torturing and killing, to creating, saving animals and the planet, while living ethically, in harmony, aligned in perfect resonance with mother Earth! Feeling the gratifying rewards that no amount of money can give you. #vegans

  2. I woild love to gtow weed like that I can smoke it every nite for my back pain. And it is so beautiful there god bless you all.

  3. Great work! Nice to see that people are willing to change, of course it's easier if it makes sense financially. Hope this example will help others to make the same decision and make the world a little bit better.

  4. Let some over grow and turn to flower on top you will get seeds…I'm really surprised how small the plants are, I use to have 5 to 6 foot plants 🪴
    My grandparents grew tobacco, pretty similar… Where's the fan's for air circulation ?
    Don't waste the roots they can be used also, dehydrating them in a dehydrator, test the amount of CBD to put into honey, 🐝🐝 you can CO – create with a local honey company in you're area, it's a win – Win for both…🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🌻🌻🌼

  5. I cringe a little when I hear them repeating that they grow something and not kill something, but the only difference is that there are no sentient and suffering someones.
    Anyway, I'm proud that they did the transition.

  6. This is so beautiful, I do feel bad for the regular people in certain industries, but they need to be able to see they can be profitable in more loving ventures. 💜

  7. Great to see. What is the target market? Seed, fibre, oil?
    Also I know it was the first time but why not simply prune the plant while it is still in the ground and leave all that beautiful soil and root ball in the ground to breakdown and keep as much carbon in the soil as possible.

  8. All farmers should stop killing animals for money they are not a plate they hve feelings like us and they do want to live like us.
    Thank god for vegan it’s getting stronger
    And thank god for all activist showing the truth about the cruelty of theses beautiful innocent angels.

  9. You know the original Levi Strauss blue jeans we all love were originally made of hemp but when it got banned, they switched to a less durable fabric: cotton.

    Perhaps Levis needs to revisit the original. It would be a lucrative market as so long as you stay the same size, your jeans won’t wear out.

    Their logo: “Can’t Bust “‘em” with a pair of jeans being torn apart by 2 mules, well those pants were made of hemp. Would be interesting even to re-create the event with a pair of hemp fabric jeans vs. the cotton denim and see who wins.
