New River Botanicals was born just before the coronavirus emerged to send us all into a panic. We noticed that large fields of hemp had started to sprout along New River at our farm, just south of Huntsville. Being able to produce CBD in Scotts County was brand new after being legalized in 2018, and an intriguing idea to us as a family since we already used it for ourselves and our dog. We started with 80 acres of plants growing on our 600-acre lot. It was a labor of love for us! We knew we wanted to bring the highest quality products to our customers, so we acquired a building for a lab and the rest is history.
