From the Pickle King to a Hemp Queen
When coming up with a name, we looked to our roots. Tonia’s grandfather was the Pickle King of the Pacific Northwest, working with farmers from the Skagit Valley in Northwest Washington State to the Willamette Valley in Oregon to grow cucumbers for the family pickle business. As a producer, Grandpa Farman and Uncle Fred had family-like relationships with their growers, inviting them to family reunions, pickle parties and holidays. Dick and Fred were in the fields as well… it was part of being connected to the product and the quality every step of the way.
So when we decided to bring hemp hearts (the yummy, nutritious core of the hemp seed) to market…. it only seemed natural to carry on the legacy of working with, and supporting, American farmers to do so. Just this time, we thought it was time for a Queen. And so Queen of Hearts began.
