BHC Harvest of CFX2 2019

Arlin Fratzke smiles as he watches his fellow Bitterroot Hemp Cooperative member Andrew Burgess take a closer look at one of the hemp plants that Arlin grew this summer on his family’s farm east of the Stevensville airport. Fratzke plans to harvest the seeds from the hemp plants to sell to a hemp oil processor in eastern Montana.
