Before European settlers arrived in this rural South Carolina community, it was the site of a Chickasaw village. The Chickasaws were hunters, gatherers and were the original farmers of this land. While walking our hemp field we came across this arrowhead. It is a symbol of great significance and is the origin of our Arrowhead Seed Company name. It symbolizes the piercing effect of a taproot.
This Revolutionary era farm has been cultivated by the current family for over 150 years with a very productive and progressive farming history. With tobacco, corn, soybeans, wheat, and cotton in our past, we are following tradition in row crops and making history in industrial hemp.
As hemp farmers ourselves we understand the challenges farmers face and understand the importance of trustworthy partners in the industry.
We are committed to progressive farming and are excited to offer our Seed Co-Op Program. Contact us for Details!

With a love of charitable works, upon graduating he traveled to Haiti to spread knowledge of organic agricultural practices at a local orphanage. He has made multiple trips and his hope is to return one day to continue his efforts with his son.
Justin spent his first two years after college in ornamental nurseries with a concentration on native perennials and was approached to move to Colorado to pursue a management position in the MMJ industry. He has been in the Colorado cannabis industry ever since with multiple grow operations under his belt. He was one of the founding team members of a multi-million dollar seed and biomass operation and was at the forefront of Colorado hemp spearheading the farm's hemp operation.

We are excited to welcome him back to the Carolinas and welcome him to our team!
