“I couldn’t have done it without the help of my parents. My parents supported me throughout this entire venture and my friends also helped me a lot throughout the whole planning and harvesting process. If it wasn’t for them, none of this would’ve happened ” Skelton said.

Penn’s Hemp is the only grower of hemp in the Edinboro area.
