First Female North Carolina Hemp Farmer Grows the Industry
December 03, 2019 // Franchising.com // Franny Tacy, Co-CEO of Franny’s Farmacy, is the first female hemp farmer in North Carolina in over 75 years. Franny is one of the preeminent experts of all things hemp, participates in the hemp Research Trials with North Carolina State University, has a TEDx speech on hemp, and is a founder of the non-profit Women in Hemp.
Located only 10 miles from downtown Asheville, North Carolina, the hardworking farmers at Franny’s Farm use sustainable, regenerative agricultural practices to cultivate its naturally grown hemp. Franny’s Farmacy provides safe access to high-quality, locally grown, sown, and produced hemp straight from Franny’s Farm in Leicester, North Carolina to customers in all 50 states. All products are tested and traceable from seed to shelf.
Because of Franny’s Farmacy’s transparent, vertically integrated seed-to-sale product line, the company has grown to be one of the most distinguished hemp and CBD brands in the U.S. and continues to expand with multiple franchises. By January of 2020, Franny’s Farmacy will have seven dispensaries throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, with plans set in motion to have 20 to 25 dispensaries by the end of 2020 across the Southeast.
Franny’s customers routinely describe the benefits of their high-quality CBD & hemp consumption, such as replacement of harmful prescription drugs to benefit their health and wellness. All locations of Franny’s Farmacy provide tinctures, edibles, topicals, smokables, vape hardware, pet products, and more.
"We are here to help people. Hemp is the only plant that can feed, clothe, shelter, and provide medicine. Our woman-owned, vertically integrated company is setting the standard for hemp quality, from seed to shelf - and people are noticing."
- Franny Tacy, Co-CEO of Franny’s Farmacy
