Marketplace Spotlight: Personal Stories Behind Cannabreeze H**p - Loudoun County Farms, VA

How does a farm go from raising water buffalo to pioneering CBD and industrial h**p production?

That’s a great question for Loudoun farmer Jeff Boogaard – a U.S. Navy veteran and corpsman who recognizes a #LoudounPossible opportunity when he sees it.

Shop from Cannabreezeh**p and other exceptional growers and makers on the Loudoun Made Loudoun Grown Marketplace: https://bit.ly/3wOKjPr

Virginia's largest water buffalo farm became Loudoun's Cannabreeze H**p in 2018, and immediately changed the lives of its owners.

‘Just Brave Enough, Just Crazy Enough:' Ashburn’s McKenna Smet Makes National Handball Team - Loudoun Now

"I didn’t expect it, but it’s all about getting out there and creating awareness and taking risks," says McKenna Smet, the surprise star of USA Team Handball tryouts.

This #LoudounPossible business owner made the national handball team after picking up the sport just last year.

Smet has trained at a professional level for the past 15 years and was able to rapidly prepare for the national team’s tryouts with expert coaching and daily access to the Elite Wellness Performance and Recovery facilities.

“The fact that it lets me train and do all of my recovery under one roof has been one of the biggest reasons I was in shape enough to go to this tryout,” she told Loudoun Now.

USA Team Handball heads to the world championships this December and hopes to compete at the Olympics in 2024 or 2028.

Most people don’t suddenly become world-class athletes in their early 30s. But Ashburn’s McKenna Smet has the ability, determination and

Brewery teams up with fellow farmers to brew a 100% Loudoun-sourced beer

Today’s the day! Introducing Loudoun Grown Farmhouse Ale, sourced with high-quality ingredients that are 100% Loudoun.

“We have some of the best soil here in the country, and no one ever talks about that,” says Wheatland Spring Farm + Brewery’s Bonnie Branding. “We were looking for ways to highlight it.”

While only a few farm breweries across the country use grain from their own fields to brew, what’s exceedingly rare is to see every single ingredient sourced locally.

“Our belief — and the last couple of years have borne this out — is that if we can grow extremely high-quality ingredients for brewing [and] not just grow ingredients and throw them in beer because we have them on the farm … then we’re able to produce beers of the highest quality we can,” John Branding said.

Two years ago, John and Bonnie Branding headed out onto their farm to forage for a specific ingredient for the brewery they had recently opened. For this particular ingredient, however,
