Westmoreland’s first hemp harvest is a bit rocky | TribLIVE.com

Two harvester machines that had been made available to farmers for lease were sidelined last week during a harvest near West Newton. The hemp harvest had to continue by hand.

“It’s new to everybody and they’re learning — learning how to plant it, learning how to harvest it,” said Greg Phillips, CEO of the Westmoreland Conservation District.
