Hemp Seed Nutrition
The birth of Living Harvest is the story of a father and son in British Columbia, Canada, and how their quest for healthful living through whole foods led them to discover the nutritional benefits of nature's miracle plant - HEMP. By launching Living Harvest, this entrepreneurial team has created not only a product, but a platform for educating people about the complete, balanced nutritional profile found in hemp seed.
In 2002, Ken and Charles established Living Harvest Conscious Nutrition, Inc., with the goal of creating hemp seed products that maintain the seed's essential nutrients. With the application of their new technology, Living Harvest yielded the world's first organic, live, protein powder made from 100% Certified Organic Hemp Seed. The result was a protein powder with an unusually high protein concentration, over 46%. This proprietary process is still considered unique in the industry. Today, Living Harvest employs technologies such as Ken's proprietary vacuum friction mill, vacuum food dryers, and cold mechanical presses in the creation of a full line of organic hemp food products. It works in close partnership with the most respected organic farmers and farmer coops across Canada. Living Harvest was also the only company in the industry to have an exclusively organic line of products from day one. It is, and will continue to be, committed to the Holmes family founding mission - to be purveyors of the finest quality, highest-nutritive, best-tasting organic hemp seed foods available.
