Hemp plants at Ananda Farms

Fulton-based hemp farm Ananda Farms this month was approved to become a you-pick hemp farm later this year, allowing consumers the chance to come onto a hemp farm and hand pick either branches and plants intended for hemp-derived products such as paper, textiles, and more.

FULTON — One of Oswego County’s largest hemp farms is introducing a new service later this year — an opportunity to pick their own hemp.

Ananda Farms, located at 69 Wilcox Road in Fulton, this month received approval from the state Department of Agriculture and Markets (DAM) to offer a you-pick hemp plant service, according to Ananda Farms founder Sarah Stenuf.
