The Hemp Inc. mill in Spring Hope, North Carolina is the largest industrial hemp processing facility in the United States.[2] It is on North Carolina Highway 581.[3]

The mill, a 70,000-square-foot (6,500 m2) former sweet potato processing plant, contains a decorticator to separate hemp hurds from external fibers, and supercritical carbon dioxide extraction for CBD recovery.[4][2]

Fiber products will become textiles and composites used in the automobile industry.[4]
