Brian Edmonds started out with an interest in hemp and CBD, a nonintoxicating compound extracted from cannabis plants, and ended up with something much larger: a "modern day Grange" with live music, craft beer and a CBD shop.
"Farmers are lonely people, and they built Granges to have places where they could socialize and hold gatherings," he explained Saturday from behind a soon-to-be-cut ribbon. The Grange was founded in 1867 as a national organization of local chapters that served as meeting places for the agricultural community.
