By Jean Lotus

Europe’s leading prefab hemp building company, which has built more than 65 specialty low-carbon homes, will stake a claim in the United States market with a large-scale hemp processing facility and headquarters in south-central Indiana. A second location is planned on tribal lands in the western United States.
