Santa Fe Farms has acquired post cultivation services from FathomNM to expand its hemp operations in New Mexico, US.
As per terms of the deal, FathomNM CEO Jeff Apodaca has joined Santa Fe Farms as vice chairman of the board of managers.

The new hemp project will feature an advanced processor, extractor, warehouse, and laboratory with 50,000 lbs per day dried biomass processing capacity.
Situated on a 20-acre site located in Albuquerque, the facility will be one of the largest and expandable facilities of its kind in the US, said the company.
