What motivated you to travel to The Texas Hemp Convention?
We wanted to see other markets out of town. We’ve been focusing on the Southeast and getting a lot of exposure back at home. We wanted to brand-out to see what other states and communities are doing.
We’re trying to be a part of the community, and we love to talk to people. Texas was nice to us. We met a lot of farmers, lots of networking connections, and soon we’d like to travel more. We’d like to get our brand out there and show what we like to do.
I just want to put out quality craft products for people that they can enjoy.Dominic Ratliff
What’s your growing background?
My mom. She lives in Florida and grows a lot of different aloe vera, elephant ears, pineapple trees, and banana trees. She’s only a postal worker but her hobby is having a garden.
My grandma used to grow tomatoes and stuff like that when I was younger. She’s no longer with us today however, she’s always been part of me growing.
When I was in college, my friends gave me an opportunity to learn and educate myself on how to do it, and I just went from there.
