The Natural Way to Better Health
At Farmulated CBD, we strive to deliver high quality affordable CBD products to our customers. We own our process and are dedicated to growing the healthiest non-GMO hemp using sustainable farming practices. Our hemp derived CBD extracts are made in house using CO2 to extract the CBD and the terpenes from the plant material, resulting in a full spectrum extract that preserves the cannabinoids and terpenes that naturally occur in hemp. All our in house products are third party tested for heavy metals and pesticides, in addition to a cannabinoid profile. This ensures the highest standard of quality of our products.
Our promise is to treat our customers as we want to be treated by providing highly effective CBD products, great value and outstanding customer service.
We are dedicated to listening to what our customers need and then delivering on this promise. We are making a difference that matters by donating a portion of our proceeds to provide clean water to the Amazonian people of Peru.
The Founders of Troyer Farms Potato Chip Company, Waterford, PA, embarked on a new business venture in 2019 that is very important to the Agriculture and Economic community in Northwestern PA.
The Troyer’s have grown potatoes, corn, wheat and other crops for nearly 50 years in Erie County. Always looking for business opportunities, and with the passing of the 2018 Federal farm bill and Pennsylvania’s Industrial Hemp program, Troyer Growers became a permit holder to grow industrial hemp on their Waterford farm. With manufacturing and branding backgrounds from 40+ years of making Troyer Farms chips, Mark Troyer had the desire to be vertically integrated. Vertically integrated means, growing hemp, processing hemp through C02 extraction, as well as develop a CBD brand to sell through retail outlets and ecommerce. The CBD processed at our facility contains less than 0.3% THC as required by the permit.
Potato farming has become very mechanized, hemp on the other hand, requires a very hands-on approach taking us back to our roots.
