Unyte Hemp – Hemp Awareness Evening

The Sunshine Was In Abundance As Were Visitors At Unyte Hemp’s Awareness Evening 

Unyte Hemp stepped into the Industrial Hemp Market earlier this year and, in doing so, created their National Cultivation Centre near Market Harborough, Leicestershire.

Taking a break part way through this year’s hemp harvest, the evening was held to bring together local farmers and interested parties alike.

The evening was well attended, with over 100 people turning up, including farmers, local councillors, business people, students and store owners. Some from as far afield as Devon, Essex and Manchester. All with some level of interest in Unyte, Hemp or Cannabis and eager to find out what’s been going on and how they can get involved or benefit in the Hemp marketplace. NIAB, The Andersons Centre and specialist machinery manufacturers were also on hand.

Jamie Bartley Group CEO opened the event with an informal introduction and brief overview of the Unyte Group, its plans and business model. With detail around this year’s hemp crop and the ongoing data study. Then the wider team were on hand, including John and Roger Clarke, the farmers responsible for this year’s crop and developing the National Cultivation Centre, along with other experts, to answer questions.

Unyte Hemp at the Hemp and CBD Expo 2019

Hemp Farming & Agriculture Panel

The September 2019 edition of the Hemp and CBD Expo at the NEC in Birmingham brought together a community all keen to see the market develop and thrive in the UK. As part of the exhibition, Jamie Bartley, CEO of Unyte Hemp, was invited onto a specialist panel discussion focused on UK Hemp farming and agriculture.

Joining Jamie on the panel were Patrick Gillet from Hempen, Colin Morgan from ADAS, a UK-based independent agricultural and environmental consultancy, and Rebekah Shaman who founded the British Hemp Association (BHA).

The group talked about the array of benefits of growing industrial Hemp and the uses for the various end products from the crop, both for farmers and the wider population; the cultivation of Hemp could have a massive positive impact not only the economy but also the environment. They also shared advice for farmers looking to get into the business.
