The Farmstead – The Benewah County FB Newsletter

Our latest Farm Stead Newsletter is out, the October 2017 Issue! Local farmer, and our county chair for Commodities, gives us the run down of “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of this last farming season in our county. The state Women’s Committee has made some changes. And our Hemp Education committee chair illuminates on the fact that hemp is a “versatile power-plant” that can be used as building materials, for clothing/textiles, for nutrition, as biofuel, and as a healing oil for many ailments.
