PITTSFORD, Vt. — Jenna Rossbach never thought she’d be harvesting hemp anywhere other than her own garden.
“It’s been a really great growing season,” she said.

She’s harvesting hemp that she didn’t grow because she couldn’t harvest her own.
Last month, NBC5 News reported about the theft of Rossbach’s entire hemp crop of 50 plants from her garden in Moretown.
But that’s not where the story ends.
“There is a happy ending, and we all could use some good news these days,” Rossbach said.

Her story caught the attention of hemp farmer Sam Markowski who runs VT Terps, a large hemp operation with roughly 130,000 plants on 90 acres.
“(The theft of Rossbach’s hemp plants) was senseless. I guess it kind of touched me because we’ve had, in our business, we have a construction business, we’ve had robberies on our facilities and our properties and it does leave a really bad feeling,” said Markowski.

He wanted to change that, so he called Rossbach.
“I said, ‘Jenna we’ve got plenty of plants here. We’d be more than happy to take care of your loss,'” said Markowski.

“It was a really good feeling,” said Rossbach.
The feeling is mutual.
“It feels good to do the right thing,” said Markowski.
“This is really a story about the big guy helping the little guy. It’s a story about Vermont agricultural community always having each others back and really, it’s a nod to cannabis culture,” said Rossbach.

It’s a culture of kindness harvested in Vermont.
