Millennials have now surpassed baby boomers as the country’s largest generation. Depending on who you ask, those born between 1982 and 2004 count among the ranks of millennials, while others define millennials as those born between 1981 and 1997.  Regardless of how you define the cohort, the great recession has split the millennial generation into two distinct groups with very different habits based on finances.

“Facing a stark set of financial circumstances, millennials started adulthood with less room for financial mistakes than previous generations,” Shannon Insler wrote in an article for Student Loan Hero. “In response, they are managing their money differently. More millennials are refinancing student loans, delaying a home purchase, and looking for creative ways to earn more money through side hustles.”

The Trump administration has announced new interim regulations for hemp production, giving growers some much needed clarity.

In December, Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, legalizing the production of hemp. Since then, producers have been waiting for the USDA to establish a national regulatory framework that would guide hemp production. The new interim rules will come into effect Thursday and will provide guidelines about hemp testing and licensing requirements.

Lebermuth took a trip to Willamette Valley Oregon to visit one of our Peppermint Oil growers to learn more about the 2019 mint harvest.

Lebermuth has partnered with this family for many years. They currently harvest nearly 350 acres of peppermint as part of the basket of crops they produce which include snap peas, sweet corn and grass seed.  The visit was fanatic, they gave us a complete tour of their operations which included swathing the mint hay into windrows, chopping and collection of mint hay into the mobile tubs which were taken to the still to be turned into the essential oil.  We watched as the mint hay was steam distilled, condensed, and separated into a powerful, sweet mobile liquid flowing into the 55 gallon drums to be shipped back to Lebermuth.
