LOUISVILLE, Ky. — I bet hemp wasn't on your dinner menu tonight, but that's exactly what was for dinner at the historic Farmington Plantation in Louisville on July 11.

The home, which used to be the center of a 550 acre hemp plantation, hosted a hemp themed dinner as a fundraiser for Farmington and the Hemp Heritage Alliance.

For $100 a person, guests enjoyed a menu including hemp wildflower English pea Hummus on Hemp toast and an aged Beemster Hemp tres leches cake made with CBD oil.

The meal got a thumbs up from 502 Hemp's Dee Dee Taylor.

“Hemp is actually considered a super food. So, it's got tons of Omega 3s and 9s and it's a healthy staple. It should be in everybody's diet. We should all be eating hemp food,” Taylor said.

Hemp returned to the plantation in 2016 as part of Kentucky's hemp pilot project.
