The Grow Must Go On: Blue Forest Farms Launches BFF CARES
(Boulder County, COLO. – April 29, 2020) Blue Forest Farms (BFF), one of the largest organic farms in Colorado and one of the leading suppliers of cutting-edge hemp genetics, is launching its Cannabis Action Relief Effort and Support (CARES) program in response to growing concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative seeks to relieve farmers of hesitations to growing hemp, especially during this unprecedented time.
As a part of the CARES program, BFF is also launching its buyback program where they will purchase harvested hemp crops grown from their genetics. This program was piloted last year, and after seeing its success, it will roll out in 2020 to all eligible partners. Other initiatives included in BFF CARES are seed payment plans, which allow customers to place a down payment on seeds, seedlings, and clones. They will also wave all priority shipment fees, reducing costs by $8-50 depending on quantity.
To further support their farmers of all types, BFF has chosen American Farmland Trust (AFT) as their non-profit partner and will be matching funds up to $5000 donated to the Farmers Relief Fund on National Giving Day, May 5th. 100% of donations to this fund will be given to farmers as $1000 grants. A tune of 1 million dollars has already begun to be given out as of April 29th. At least one of these grants will be awarded to a hemp farmer.
Applications for the BFF CARES Program will soon be available at www.blueforestfarms.com. Donations to the Farmer Relief Fund can be made here.
