The Dish: What the Hemp?

Thursday, April 26, 2018
5:30pm – 7:00pm
ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St

Doors open at 5:00pm. Cash bar.

Industrial hemp is planted on over 1,200 acres of Vermont’s working lands. While there has been much discussion of the oil extracted from the plant (CBD), it’s worth noting the many uses of this versatile crop. From animal feed to fuel, fabric to dietary supplements, industrial hemp provides opportunities for Vermont farmers to diversify their operations. With the increasing interest and popularity of CBD products, growers now have a new market for their crop. Here in Vermont we’ve seen a growth in CBD-infused products from coffee and juice to oils and supplements. We’ve even seen a number of restaurants experiment with cooking with CBD. Join us during Vermont Restaurant Week as we explore the hemp crop and hear from farmers, chefs, business owners, and agronomists about the ways in which the evolving understanding of hemp and CBD is impacting our food system.
