The Green Toad Hemp Farm, which is the first and only Black-owned hemp farm in the state of Georgia, was co-founded by Reginald Reese who brought in his 25 years of experience as a retail corporate executive with companies like Walmart and Ross. It was also co-founded by Dwayne Hirsch, an award-winning businessman and small business advocate from Chicago with extensive experience in business development through real estate and consumer packaged goods. Reginald and Dwayne joined forces to build a corporate farming model that began with an empty 17.5-acre patch of land in Metter, Georgia, and is now today a rising force in the multi-billion dollar industry.

Having seen family and friends suffer from illnesses such as high blood pressure, cancer, and autism, Reginald and Dwayne became vested advocates for the benefits of the Hemp industry as a whole.

They hope that this vertically integrated operation based in Metter will be felt in the Metro Atlanta Area and across the country while creating numerous jobs in the city. Through this estimable partnership, Manisha Holiday will be able to drive education within the community encouraging the usage of hemp and CBD for the treatment of a variety of medical conditions.

“My life is committed to growing, processing, and providing an easily accessible supply chain for everyone who wants a medical healing plant that can change their life forever and protect and heal all the people they love and care about,” says Reginald.
