Greg LeGuier has been involved with the hemp sector since 2017, and in 2020 co-founded Harvey Hemp, which is pursuing the local processing of hemp seed for food products, well-being, and commercial applications.
Greg is passionate about closing the gap between those farmers who want and are willing to grow hemp for seed, and customers who seek high quality non-food and food grade hemp seed oil, protein meal, and other value add products – by providing southwest based processing operations and solutions.
Greg is a Chartered Accountant, holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and Fellow of the Governance Institute of Australia.
Greg has over 25 years executive experience in finance and business and is currently the Chief Financial Officer of the Australian Medical Association (WA) Inc Group. Early in Greg’s career he held Board advisory and executive management positions with one of Australia’s largest co-operatives – the Capricorn Group – for 8 years. Greg has significant experience serving, and consulting to member based, and for mission and purpose organisations in the areas of governance, strategy, and risk management.
My background is in horse training, business management and local government enforcement, with a behind the scenes role in both dairy farming and cropping on the family farm before emigrating to Australia.
My interest in both regenerative farming and solar passive building led to an introduction to hemp and its many benefits for us and the planet. This has led to my partner and I purchasing a small farm to complete the dream to grow and build our own hemp home. I have worked on the design with an energy assessor and believe that with hemp as the material used, the house will outperform the figures on paper. New to the industry but excited about the potential that lies ahead.
