Catoctin Hemp's Story
Our Founder and CEO, Bob VanWingerden, comes from a large family with a dominant horticulture background. His father emigrated from Holland when he was young and started many greenhouse businesses across the country. In 1985, Bob continued in his father’s footsteps and founded Catoctin Mountain Growers, a family owned and operated commercial greenhouse nestled in the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains near Frederick, Maryland. He started with just 1 acre of greenhouse space but has since expanded to a 18 acre state-of-the-art facility. Today, Catoctin Mountain Growers is a trusted wholesale plant grower and distributor to large corporations such as Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Giant Food.
Growing for others
In 2019, the VanWingerdens took their horticulture expertise to the rapidly evolving hemp industry and founded Catoctin Hemp. The company, starting as a provider of hemp plants and hemp oil for others, quickly expanded from an established Maryland hemp grower and processor to a premier vertically integrated manufacturer of CBD by 2021
