UMATILLA, Fla. (October 27, 2022) – Treadwell Farms, a Florida family hemp company, and Living Vitalitea Kombucha have come together to launch a kombucha tea brewed to incorporate Fresh From Florida hemp leaves from Treadwell Farms. The first made from and in the state, Florida Sunset Organic Hemp Kombucha ($45 for a 12-pack) is inspired by the smells and tastes that embody the terpene-rich hemp.
“We wanted to capture the essence of this beautiful, magical plant,” said Daniel Koenigkann, owner and brewer of Living Vitalitea. “Treadwell Farms was able to offer us whole plant material, which includes the leaves, stems, as well as the flower. With this, we created a fullbodied, full flavor kombucha elixir that contains all of the terpenes and flavonoids of the hemp plant with notes of pine, strawberry, and even guava. We intentionally left out the CBD and THC because they are simply not water-soluble, and mostly anyone using CBD in water-based drinks are using chemicalized processes that we simply avoid.”
Jammie Treadwell, co-owner of Treadwell Farms added, “At Treadwell Farms, we’ve always been proponents of utilizing the whole hemp plant. What comes out of it are organic nutrients that reduce inflammation, reduce anxiety, and reduce aches and pains – amongst other wellness benefits. Combined with the antioxidant, probiotic-rich kombucha, it’s a superfood product that fully supports people’s health and wellness – and it tastes great.”
Treadwell continued,” Being a local company and farmer, we are also all about supporting local business. This is why we partnered with such a highly reputable kombucha manufacturer, Living Vitalitea.” Treadwell Farms ultimate plan is to be a cultivator of the hemp industry for the region. They received one of Florida’s first hemp cultivation licenses in May 2020 to grow in the state. Treadwell Farms also is an approved source for hemp by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and was one of the first hemp companies in the state to participate in the Fresh From Florida program. They were also awarded by the Florida Farm Bureau Federation CARES Program for their responsible environmental stewardship.
“There are so many hemp and CBD products out there, but most seem to be shrouded in ambiguity and secrecy. We just don't know the source and quality,” continued Koenigkann. “Once we met with Jammie Treadwell, we were convinced we found the right supplier for our high-quality kombucha. She immediately offered to give us a tour and explained every aspect of their process, including the growing, harvesting, and curing processes. They have the freshest and highest quality hemp plant material, which is exactly what we were looking for to infuse into our raw and organic kombucha.”

The Florida Sunset Hemp Kombucha can be found in retail locations across Central Florida, Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Cocoa Beach.
