First Crop Launches Investment Crowdfunding Campaign
Santa Fe, N.M., April 14, 2021 – First Crop, a company dedicated to improving the health and wellness of people and planet through the regenerative power of hemp, has just launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on the MicroVentures platform. Offering an extensive line of USDA Certified Organic CBD products formulated by experts for maximum therapeutic benefit, First Crop seeks investment to accelerate already significant sales growth.
As a public benefit company, First Crop has committed itself to a social purpose alongside that of maximizing shareholder value: to strengthen communities and restore the environment. “We started First Crop,” says co-founder and CEO David Weir, “because we felt business could be a force for good.”
First Crop’s founders believe the cultivation of industrial hemp by small and mid-sized farms can be a key catalyst to economic and environmental renewal. The company seeks to revitalize rural communities by empowering individuals to work together to gain more control over their financial security, health and wellness. Most importantly, First Crop supports farmers and their communities through profit sharing and a generous charitable giving program.
In addition to hemp’s value to farmers as a high-value commodity crop, it also serves as a biological regenerative ecosystem. By simply growing, it removes CO2 and other greenhouse gases from the air and regenerates the soil. Oil from its flowers and fibers from its stalk are used in medicine, food, textiles, clothing, fuel, plastics and building materials.
“First Crop stands out from competitors in so many ways,” says Weir. “Our social mission, USDA Organic certification and vertically integrated business that offers seed-to-shelf quality control, traceability, and transparency are unique in the industry.”
First Crop provides farmer partners with subsidized seeds and offers hands-on consulting related to every aspect of producing a quality hemp crop, from site selection and soil and water evaluation to planting, growing, harvesting, drying and storing the crop. First Crop also advises on regenerative farming practices to optimize yields and restore the land. And First Crop guarantees purchase of harvested hemp at fair market prices.
In addition, First Crop operates a state-of-the-art hemp processing facility that uses CO2 extraction technology to produce full-spectrum CBD oil without the use of chemicals or solvents. First Crop’s best-in-class CBD products, including capsules, tinctures, and topicals, are made from unique proprietary formulations developed by experts that combine CBD with adaptogenic herbs. All products are USDA Certified Organic and Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free certified and confirmed to be free of contaminants by third-party lab tests. First Crop uses only recyclable glass jars and post-consumer recycled paper for its packaging.
