An ever-inspiring farmer, Franny is rocking the hemp scene in North Carolina. Calling Asheville home since 1999, she has degrees and work experience in Forestry and Education, and over a decade of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. Along with husband Jeff and their son Zach, they built their family farm in the winter of 2012. Known as Franny’s Farm, it serves as an agritourism hub, welcoming visitors from all over the world to stay in one of the many lodging options, celebrate a farm wedding, do yoga with goats and enjoy local music festivals. Franny was the first female farmer in North Carolina to plant industrial hemp and has entered the scene with a powerful force.
