Dan Knapp, Partner of Friendly Farms
Russ Belville is joined by Dan Knapp, Partner of Friendly Farms at the 2016 Portland Indo Expo. Family Farms have been focused on providing plant oil extraction products and methods that are safe in terms of production and consumption.
They feel that oils that will be used for therapeutic purposes, or for use in food production, should be as safe as possible and contain no trace of the solvents used during the extraction process. They also feel that people who wish to produce plant oils should be able to do so without putting themselves or others at risk by using volatile and dangerous solvents. Friendly Farms believes that butane, and other dangerous solvents, should be removed from the conversation as an option for oil extraction.
