Message from Colin Steddy, The Hemp Corporation:
Exciting news. Don’t miss out…
The Hemp Corporation Pty Ltd is about to place an order for hemp seed with their breeder in China. The seed is exceptional quality. It is from the 2018 crop. What others are saying about the seed…
‘WOW…I have never seen a hemp plant get out of the ground so quickly’.
‘Yuma is probably the best biomass crop that I have ever grown’.
This is The Hemp Corporation’s third major order. Quarantine has never been a problem and it meets all Australian quality standards.
Order as much as you need, there is no minimum or maximum amount. Price will be adjusted according the size of the total order.
Contact Tracey Steddy on 0 400 107 286 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order or ask questions. ASAP orders have to be placed by 5pm, 31st August 2018.
