"I decided we were all in"

US (VA): Local farm shifts gears to hemp and CBD

Loudoun has conquered the DMV craft beverage scene. Is craft cannabis next? Over the past four years, Loudoun farmers have been legally growing hemp and producing locally grown CBD products. But there are still plenty of misconceptions about what CBD is all about. No–it’s not pot, and yes, it’s legal.

Jeff Boogaard planted his first hemp crop in 2019 as an experiment after nine years of running one of the commonwealth’s largest Asian water buffalo farms. Three years after launching Cannabreeze Hemp Farm & Company, Boogaard is “all in,” with plans to expand his operation to include a members-only private club focused on “all things cannabis.”

In the past two months, Boogaard and his team have opened a CBD tasting room on his scenic farm near Lovettsville and launched a retail kiosk at Dulles Town Center. He plans to start a private membership-based club at the farm later this summer.
