Northern Limits Farm, Canton, which sells pastured, grain-finished beef, is also home to Grasse River BioHemp, one of four state-permitted St. Lawrence County research locations growing industrial hemp. From left, owner Joe Eisele, Zach Smith, partner Dean Laubscher and Cory Chase stand in the hemp field. They believe hemp, which contains minimal THC, may eventually become a profitable crop throughout the North Country. NCNow photo by Cheryl Shumway.
