It was a five-month solo motorcycle adventure through South America that piqued Stephen’s interest in farming, grape growing, and wine-making. This ultimately led him to get his hands dirty working for boutique wineries and vineyards in Napa, California, arguably the wine mecca of the world.
By 2012, Stephen found his next job back in Colorado to work as the Director of Business Development for the first Organic distillery in the US, and first Biodynamic® farm in Colorado. Experiencing half a year on this 90,000-acre cattle ranch opened Stephen's eyes to large scale holistic land management, animal husbandry, and agricultural and economic diversification.
Stephen's fascination with hemp goes back over 20 years when he wrote his high school research paper on the many uses of hemp. "My mind was blown by how dynamic this crop is and by the strange fact that hemp is not being used for building materials, medicines, food, fiber and more. This truly feels like my life's work. Time to bring hemp back." This is Onda.
