Hemp Stripping (300 plants per hour) & Drying (1000#/hour) for your 2019 crop!
Mark, a 4th generation farmer, grew up in Denmark, Wisconsin working full-time on the family farm through high school and part-time ever since. He started construction as a nineteen year old general laborer, soon after taking a boiler maker apprenticeship, and graduating as a journeyman in 1998. Hired by AZCO as a General Foreman, Mark was promoted to trade superintendent in 2003 and for nine years led the construction and repair of numerous power plants. In 2012, Mark took on a new role with Boldt Construction, one of the largest professional construction firms in the United States. Up until March of 2019, Mark spearheaded the company's 100 plus boilermaker craft, mentored future leaders, and managed the firm's small boiler repair operations from their Appleton Wisconsin HQ. Although he is still actively consulting for Boldt, his full time focus is fabrication and mechanizing Konopie's daily operations as an industrial hemp grower, extractor and seed/seedling supplier.
