More about Hempen

Hempen are pioneer producers of certified organic hemp and CBD. We’re led by our values of sustainability, authenticity, and the ethical production of hemp and CBD products, made with love on our farm in Oxfordshire.

As well as a co-operative we’re also a not-for-profit, which means we’re driven by our values and not by our wallets. Down on the farm, we lovingly craft the hemp plant into premium hemp and CBD products, for health & well-being, culinary and cosmetic use.

Being the first and leading UK-grown certified organic hemp farm, we’re always looking to pioneer new solutions. We believe that growing and producing our own products wherever possible, means we can bring you the highest quality hemp products, with the lowest environmental impact and the greatest transparency.

On our farm on the Hardwick Estate, in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, we’ve been growing organic hemp since 2015. Though we’re not currently growing hemp at this site, we’ve been collaborating with other organic farmers since 2016. We’re continuing to cultivate closer relationships with existing and new hemp farmers around the UK, to help them grow and develop, and also source our seed-to-shelf UK organic hemp so we can keep up with the rising demand!
