On December 23, 2019, Louisiana’s State Industrial Hemp Plan was approved by the USDA. A few days later on December 29, 2019, the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry’s Industrial Program began accepting applications for seed and plant production, transportation and permission to process industrial hemp in Louisiana. Two local applicants received their licenses on February 21, 2020. Business partners John Cash and Chris Ancher were officially granted Louisiana License 22-1100021 and 22-1100023 to grow low tetrahydrocannobinal (THC) Industrial Hemp crops under the name Bon Temps Growers. Legally, under the eyes and rules of the law, they are permitted to perform seed production, crop cultivation, and to process and transport their products.

Cash was raised in a country setting just outside of Logansport where his family always had a garden of various fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The love of growing things developed and became a quest of Cash’s to learn all that he could about his past time. What started as a hobby and family chore would progress into a profession with Cash receiving a degree in Horticulture.

He took his degree and knowledge and opened his own business, Exotic Plant Farms on his property outside of Logansport. He and his wife, Mary, would soon expand north into Keithville and open another business called Ark-La-Tex Water Gardens. With their new expansion of products, that name has now been updated to My Secret Garden.
