Meet the Team
We prioritize agility, sustainability, and growth to serve our farmers, our customers, and our planet. We aim to elevate and honor PA farmers and agriculture.
Josh Leidhecker is the owner of Susquehanna Hemp Co and also owns Susquehanna Mills. The whole team works for both companies.
Josh's combination of hustle and innovation guides the hemp operation. He was the first farmer to plant Industrial Hemp in PA after prohibition ended in 2017.
He sits on the PA Department of Agriculture's Hemp Steering Committee, and he's been an entrepreneur since he was a kid.
Eric Deuel, or Deuely, is our Shop Manager who makes and builds all kinds of things to support and innovate our objectives.
He always knows where the tools are, and knows how everything works and fixes all of our equipment when it breaks. He's worked with us since 2000--since before the beginning.
April Line is our Special Projects Manager. Her various nerdy background includes hygiene product formulation, writing and design, management, and marketing serves a lot of the arms of what we do.
She keeps our information together and pushes projects forward as opportunities arise. She's worked with us since 2018.
Alaska Gonzalez is our clone specialist and worker bee. Her background in production farming serves our Hemp objectives well.
She's been working with us since 2016, and also fills in wherever she is needed.
Edwin Keller, or Buddy, is our delivery driver. He's worked with us since 2015 and has a great rapport with a lot of our customers.
His background as a school bus driver makes him unflappable on the road, and he is very detail oriented.
Paulette & Mark are our part-time flower processing magicians.
They are both new in 2020, and they bring a spark of energy and mischief to our days when they're around.
