Pioneering Hemp Cultivation in the Midwest

Root 66 Farms is made up of entrepreneurs, farmers, agronomists and geneticists all passionate about bringing hemp cultivation to the forefront in the Midwest. 

At Root 66 Farms, we are fascinated by hemp in all of its many forms, and the near limitless possibilities this incredible plant holds. Helping to revitalize the farming community through hemp cultivation, not only in Pontiac but throughout Illinois, holds a special place in our hearts.

And with the incredible team that makes up Root 66 Farms, we will be able to deliver world-class genetics that will put Pontiac and Illinois on the map as a true leader in hemp cultivation.

This includes the famous “Meramec Caverns” barn, now the last one standing in the United States.
