If tulip bouquets were missing from the cooler at Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, Iverson family members immediately knew whom to suspect.

“Grandpa was known for taking tulips to all the local businesses,” his granddaughter Christina Iverson said wiping away her tears.

“And if he were still here, he would probably be giving away products from Red Barn Hemp especially knowing how it can make people’s lives better,” his daughter Barb Iverson added with a chuckle.  

Mentioning grandpa or dad - Ross Iverson -brings both laughter and tears to the Iverson family.

At age 90, Ross Iverson was diagnosed with terminal cancer and sent home with a bag of pills. Seeing the family’s patriarch bedridden and lethargic due to medications was heartbreaking for his children and grandchildren.

Searching for a way to allow Ross to live the rest of his days pain free while also spending time with his family, a cousin recommended hemp, giving him 42 days of great memories with his family and friends before he passed.

“Using CBD, grandpa was still grandpa but maybe a little less ornery,” Christina said. “I remember taking him for a drive around the farm during the tulip festival and him asking about who was going to move a pile of gravel.”

Seeing how hemp made a difference for their family inspired the Iversons to grow the crop and start Red Barn Hemp, creating and selling hemp products including massage oils, muscle gels, capsules and dog biscuits.

The third generation of the farm, cousins Christina Iverson, 35; Megan Iverson, 25; and Emily Iverson, 19, are the owners of Red Barn Hemp.

Seeing the positive impact their work has on people’s lives is both inspiring and humbling for family.

“We have seen people before they started using it and after and there is a definite improvement in the quality of their life,” Emily said.
