(Learfield) The city of Lanesboro is throwing its support behind its first industrial hemp business.
5th Sun Gardens ran by Luis Hummel, is part of Minnesota's DNR industrial hemp pilot program. The Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce and other small businesses held a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday night to officially welcoming 5th Sun Gardens.
Hummel says it's an organic farm that uses sustainable practices to grow hemp that has less than three percent THC. Iowa just legalized industrial hemp production and Wisconsin is also a hemp growing state.
