Jim Hutchens, Vital Element’s CEO, has a family farm in Eastern Oregon which is considered the finest Hemp growing environment in the world. Jim’s family has owned and worked the farm since 1972. Jim grew up on the farm playing and working in the fields where Vital Element’s Hemp is now grown. Vital Element’s founders have a deep passion for serving others and this venture is truly a labor of love. The Hemp is raised using organic farming practices, harvested and processed by hand. Once the hand bucked flower is cured it is processed into the highest quality CBD Isolate. That CBD Isolate is what’s found in all of Vital Element’s products. Seed to Sales.
Jim started growing hemp in 2017 in Ontario, Oregon, which is considered to be one of the top regions in the world for growing Hemp. Jim is a combat Veteran who spent 29 years as an Army Helicopter pilot and spent 10 years policing the drug trafficking trade from the skies. Be sure to ask Jim about his military career and how he got into the Hemp business after retirement. He’s a proud Veteran, family man and outdoorsman.
