About Us - Old

Welcome to Piedmont Hemp Co.®, where our rich heritage of resilience, innovation, and commitment to well-being converge to craft premium health and wellness products infused with the finest hemp. Our story is deeply rooted in the legacy of Grandpa Johnny, a man of remarkable resilience and business acumen. In the challenging era of the Great Depression, with no ability to read or write, Grandpa Johnny's vision and determination led him to acquire a 75-acre farm in Elm City, North Carolina, for $2,350.00 in 1935.

This land, rich with potential and promise, became the cornerstone of our family's journey. The farm evolved into a treasured heir property through the generations, meticulously cared for by John Estee Parker, our beloved father. His stewardship from one generation to the next ensured that the spirit of entrepreneurship, dedication to our land, and hard work and innovation values were preserved.

In 2017, a significant milestone marked the evolution of our family's farming legacy. In collaboration with the North Carolina A&T State University Agriculture Department, the NC Department of Agriculture Industrial Hemp Commission granted our farm a license. This pivotal moment heralded the beginning of our journey into hemp cultivation, opening new pathways for innovation and wellness.

Inspired by the healing potentials of hemp and walking in the entrepreneurial footsteps of Grandpa Johnny, Keith, and Tasha founded Piedmont Hemp Co.®.

Alongside childhood friends and now key business contributors Ron Smith Jr. and Michele Battle, they form the backbone of our brand. Their collective vision, passion, and dedication fuel our mission to harness the natural power of hemp in creating products that promote health, wellness, and a sustainable future.

Our journey from a family-owned farm to a pioneering force in the hemp industry is a testament to our enduring commitment to quality, sustainability, and community. At Piedmont Hemp Co.®, we honor our past as we look to the future, striving to enrich lives through hemp's natural benefits. Join us as we pioneer new paths, guided by the legacy of resilience, innovation, and well-being that defines our story.
