Organic grower Dan Kuebler has been well-known to mid-Missouri farmers and consumers for decades. Now he is working to convert part of his farm to the growing of hemp, a new crop in Boone County. To make the transition on the hill where he farms, Dan has brought in truckloads of composted sawdust and new dirt to create a terrace-like terrain. He plans new infrastructure as well, and takes listeners on a journey to create a new way of growing a crop that was, after all, traditional in Missouri from settlement times.
