Discover Affordable, Locally Grown and Processed Hemp
The team at Dry Creek Hemp Farm is excited to be a part of Cowboy Jim’s year-round market. They are a small family farm that started to grow industrial hemp for their own personal use. Dr. Lynell Braught is a disabled vet and was told prescription medicines were the only answer for the knee and back pain she experienced. After trying some CBD oil, she decided there had to be a good and affordable option. This is what led her to create a special way of growing and processing the hemp plant.
Lynell makes sure every step of the way is as natural and pure as possible. Even her fertilizers are totally natural. Her pest control comes from companion planting of other vegetables in the field and greenhouse. She says she takes special care in making sure there are no pesticides or other toxic sprays used in and around the crop. The city of White Sulphur Springs has even agreed not to use any sprays on her street. Dry Creek Hemp Farms offers 100% hemp oil with a natural hemp flavor of dirty grass. The oils may be used orally or topically.

Supporting the American Dream
Cowboy Jim’s organizers tell us they are supporting the American dream. Their purpose is it keeps money in a local economy, helps local vendors start retail businesses to sell their products, and gives a community a HUGE variety of things to buy and buy locally. Spaces that were previously used by large corporations to funnel money out of communities are now being used by local vendors to keep money inside a community which I think is pretty cool.
