Texas Hemp Farming Rules

Hemp farms are coming to Texas! After passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, Texas legalized and regulated hemp farming under House Bill 1325. This did not instantly legalize planting seed. Instead it instructed the Texas Dept of Agriculture and it’s Commissioner Sid Miller to develop guidelines for hemp farming in Texas. Mr. Miller pledged to do his best to develop a program that will be fair for farmers and propel Texas into being the leader in hemp production. Licensing will be available soon to the eager farmers of Texas. For the latest draft rules and more information, please visit the Texas Dept of Agriculture website directly or contact their staff. Do not rely on a consultant or 3rd party to get accurate information on your behalf. Scammers are preying on farmers that want to dive head first into production. We recommend analyzing the market and relying on the advice of the Ag Dept.
