South Bend Industrial Hemp was founded by a family farm coming together to revolutionize the future of agriculture through hemp. Our hemp processing facility is located near Great Bend, Kansas. We produce the raw  American-made hurd and bast for manufacturers across the nation. SBIH Processing is the nation's primary Midwest-based hemp processing facility.
