After an educational first season, Bobby and Erica McNamee learned many lessons in their new venture, Huff Farms.
Bobby and Erica, with the help of their families, started farming in 2020. The couple quickly realized a need in the market for high-quality and locally grown hemp products and have also started Huff’s Puffs, selling smokable CBD and prerolls.
When their friends, Levonna and Linda of Black Bear Ridge Farm shared their ideas and introduced the duo to the Treadwells. The couple found themselves surrounded by a group that would be willing to share with them and help them on their new journey. With their community and serving others in mind, the couple decided to begin farming and leave a strong legacy for their family.
“We’re working for our daughter’s future and we’ve included our families to also leave show them how much we’ve appreciated our families’ help over the years and recognize the hard work that they put in and hopefully we can give that to our daughter.”
Huff Farms tested a few different varieties and has found success with a few but is looking forward to finding new genetics and cultivating seedling that was grown with Florida’s climate in mind. As pioneers in the industry, the McNamee’s know that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create something that can positively impact their community.
