Who is Johnny Hempseed?
Johnny H. Vollmer
Born into a 5th generation farming family – Johnny Vollmer grew up on his family farm; the Vollmer Farm. The Vollmer Farm has a multi-purpose landscape growing USDA organic fruits and vegetables with 40 acres devoted to agro-tourism. The Vollmer lineage is filled with hard-working innovators, educators, and risk takers. Before Johnny had a passion for hemp, he did not have much direction in what he wanted to do in life or where he wanted to start his career. However, since his grandfather’s passing in June of 2014, he has gained a stronger responsibility to his family legacy and begun researching ways to help the farm grow and sustain for generations to come. Hemp became a legitimate opportunity last summer when Johnny met the guys from Industrial Hemp Manufacturing LLC.
Marketing/Entrepreneurship double major – Johnny has made the most out of his college experience at Western. Through the entrepreneurial department and the business school, Johnny has a strong network of business professors and colleagues, has experience in developing businesses, and also began market research for hemp. As he prepares to graduate in December 2016, Johnny hopes to inspire a new wave of tenacious entrepreneurs that work hard to achieve their dreams.
