WHAT: Treadwell Farms and the Ravenous Pig Brewing Company released an amber ale on Tuesday, December 1, brewed with hemp leaves grown and harvested by Umatilla-based Treadwell Farms. The brew is called Treadwell Red. (Note: It doesn’t contain CBD or THC as the leaves were used to create this special brew.) For the occasion, the Ravenous Pig Brewing Company also created a special cocktail made with the Treadwell Farms Essential Blend Hemp CBD. Called the Pride of Eustis, where the Treadwell Farms greenhouse is located, it contained tequila, mint, lime and falernum with the CBD. The Treadwell Farms team was also on-hand to educate about the farm and CBD production process. Guests also learned about the benefits of CBD and how it works in the body.
Jammie Treadwell, co-owner, Treadwell Farms: “One of the things I enjoy most about my job is developing local partnerships and collaborations. In everything we do at Treadwell Farms we always work towards this, whether it be farmers, retail, pharmacies or local companies looking for fresh ingredients for specially crafted products utilizing the whole hemp plant. I also love working with other craftsman, like Ravenous Pig, who really care about ingredients with a passion like we do. Our products are truly Fresh From Florida, so you know what we’ve created is quality. We take great pride in that.”
Jenna Foor, brewery manager, Ravenous Pig Brewing Company: “Our ability to work with local suppliers has been part of the The Ravenous Pig’s ethos since the beginning. Extending this to the brewery side is exciting to us. There are a few commonalities between us and Treadwell Farms that told us this collaboration needed to happen. We both are passionate about what we do and love agriculture and sustainability. Jammie Treadwell’s passion for the hemp industry is infectious and the Treadwell team is equally meticulous about delivering a holistic product that can help people to live their best life. We want to collaborate with a business like that.”
