Moss Crossing CEO and co-owner, Heidi Fiskstad, was featured in KVAL news to share her account of a rising interest in hemp following the publication of an Oregon State University study.

“We’ve had some customers calling in to see what we know on the subject, and to see if we have any products of that type,” Heidi Fikstad said.
