Howard Farms

The Birthplace of New River Botanicals
Our Story
Our Story

Where we come from, there’s green grass and calm water as far as the eye can see. Nature gave us New River, the beautiful body of water that flows through a mile of our family’s farmland. Now, we’re using it to nourish the land and grow all-natural CBD for you and your loved ones.

Every year, the New River helps us grow hundreds of new plants by hydrating our 600-acre farm.

Once planted, we spend countless hours carefully and lovingly tending to the farm and prepping the plants for the extraction phase of our process. It may sound like a lot of work, but we truly love it!

Today, three generations of our family share a special part in our farm-to-bottle process. Together, we proudly produce all-natural products that are changing lives for the better — right here on Howard Farms!

Our Story

Our 600-acre farm, Howard Farms, has been in our family for three generations. New River Botanicals was founded in 2019 in Scott County, TN. Lucky to have the waters of New River flowing through our farm, we have dedicated 70 acres to the cultivation and harvesting of hemp. We don’t just say we have the highest quality CBD products out there, we have the backing to prove it!

GMB Certified

We proudly boast that we are GMB certified. What exactly is GMB certified and why does it matter? GMB stands for Good Manufacturing Practices and is a certification that is awarded by the FDA to manufacturers who are in compliance with the highest standards. Following the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the FDA uses GMB certifications to make sure good practices are followed in industries such as foods and supplements, pharmaceuticals, and vaccines. GMB-certified businesses are expected to upkeep quality standards for valid record keeping, proper equipment functioning and testing, and batch consistency to name a few.

ISO 9001 Certification

What is ISO 9001 certification? It is an international standard that sets out requirements for a quality management system. Obtaining this certification, shows that you have processes in place to provide quality products and services. It means you know what you are doing and are able to consistently perform above standards. From production to invoicing, you display that you are organized and work in a systematic manner.

Our Start

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.

Our Role In The Community

By the time 2020 rolled around, we were deep into production and like everyone else, were scared and unsure about how things were going to move forward with the pandemic. Our number one concern was keeping our 200 employees safe. We, like everyone else, were aware of the hand sanitizer shortage and thought ‘ why not help out with this?’ We can keep not only our employees safe, but help to fill a need. So we pivoted our labs’ production into making hand sanitizer for everyone and distributed it in the community. Not only do we step in to help fill a need in the community, but we also use our farm as a place to help kids become interested in agriculture and keep locals employed. 

Our family has poured our hearts and soul into making this CBD for our customers. We can truly claim we are farm to bottle with our process and we know we put out a high-quality product for you! We are one of a few companies that hold both GMB and ISO 9001 certifications. We hope that you feel more connected with us after reading this, we know we do.
