Andrea Schiavi, the owner of Schiavi Seeds, has played a major role in the US hemp market, working with several state departments to procure, study, and produce European seeds. These seeds have been bred and certified by the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops in Serbia, the Institute of Natural Fibers and Medicines in Poland, and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture.
Schiavi Seeds was founded by Andrea Schiavi and Karen K. Dixon in 2015. Andrea moved to Kentucky from Northern Italy in 2004, and some ten years later he began working with Departments of Agriculture, sowing the seeds for the launch of the company that bears his name.
Karen Dixon, who serves as the COO, lives in Washington, D.C., and has an extensive academic background, spanning fields such as commercial litigation.
These two co-founders and co-owners are helped by a small but experienced team, including Quality Control Manager Kenny Hunter and Crop Advisor J.T. Workman. They also hire advisors, researchers, and consultants in France, Poland, and Serbia, composing a varied, experienced, and international team of hemp experts.
Kentucky-based Schiavi Seeds is perfectly positioned to meet the growing needs of the US hemp market, as it has secured exclusive rights to several European hemp varietals. All of the following seed varietals were bred in Europe, are backed by years and sometimes decades of field tests, and are available from Schiavi Seeds:
