Amber Jasa, Sales Support
I grew up on a small family farm outside of Saint Edward, NE.
After high school, I attended the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and then received my master’s degree from Fort Hays State University in Hays, KS. My favorite part of this job is speaking with the many unique individuals around the country that have also found their way into the hemp industry.
When I’m not speaking with people about hemp equipment, I spend time with my partner, Kevin, and 2 children, Conner and Kaia. I also enjoy learning, traveling, and using essential oils.

Nate was born and raised on the Platte River Valley in Central Nebraska.
I’ve worked with agricultural equipment for many years of my life. Taking that knowledge and applying it to the hemp industry is a big passion of mine. My favorite part of this job, aside from travelling around the country, is advancing an industry that has not existed in the United States in the past 70 years.
When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with my wife and 3 children. I enjoy learning about how we used to live, so we involve ourselves in primitive skills retreats.
