MANHEIM, PA., (January 28, 2020) – Kreider Farms, Central Pennsylvania’s favorite producer of farm fresh milk, ice cream, premium eggs, and more, offered complimentary samples of their recently launched line of unique hemp iced tea drinks—Chiques Creek Hemp Tea—during the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show. They also sampled the product at Giant Foods’ booth near the Farm Show Complex Food Court on Wednesday, January 8th.
Full-size bottles of Chiques Creek Hemp Tea were for sale at the PennAg booth throughout the entire show, January 4-11, 2020. The teas were well received and over 14,000 were sold and consumed throughout the week.
Show visitors had the option to try the three currently available flavors of Chiques Creek Hemp Tea—all made from a blend of hemp seed oil and natural flavoring with no artificial sweeteners:
- The Original Recipe – showcases the earthy flavor of hemp
- Passionfruit + Mint – a refreshing tropical blend
- Peach + Lemon + Dandelion – a complex blend of earthy, fruity, and tastefully bitter notes
Chiques Creek Hemp Tea does not contain CBD or THC, as the FDA has not yet approved these additives for food and beverage use. As regulations change, Kreider Farms may explore future recipe alterations. For now, the family-owned producer is simply excited to offer this new taste sensation made with Pennsylvania’s hottest crop!
“Our Lancaster family farming heritage dating back over 275 years is rich with hemp agriculture,” said Khalee Kreider, Marketing/Social Media Specialist at Kreider Farms. “In fact, the neighboring township is named Hempfield Township because of the hemp industry in this area dating back to colonial times. Our ancestors grew and processed hemp on our farms.”
Named for the refreshing creek that flows through Kreider Farms’ company headquarters, Chiques Creek is more than a delicious tea—it’s a celebration of Lancaster County heritage.
