Katie Moyer is the founder of Kentucky Hemp Works, a seed and root processing facility in Western Kentucky. Her efforts to legalize hemp began in 2007 when she drafted the first version of a Kentucky Hemp Bill. Because of her efforts traveling across the state educating and lobbying, Katie was appointed to the Kentucky Industrial Hemp Commission, where she served on the education and legislation committees.
When hemp became legal under the Farm Bill, Katie had the chance to grow the first legal, privately owned hemp plot since World War II. This crop led to the start of Kentucky Hemp Works, which continues to produce top-quality hemp products from every part of the plant. She now sits on the Kentucky Industrial Hemp Advisory Board as well as the Kentucky Agriculture Development Board, which administers Tobacco Settlement Funds to help farmers diversify crops and fosters new growth and industries in Kentucky agriculture.
