Our Mission

The FLWR CITY CUP is a semiannual hemp competition, curated to build community and raise funds for reinvestment in community development initiatives. The 2020 FLWR CITY “Harvest Cup” is an event celebrating completion of the 2020 Harvest season, and stressing the importance of New York hemp flower for the both the NY farming community and consumers.  

It is the belief of the organizers that flower - as a farm product and a consumer good - Is an important Social and economic resource for the NYS community in such trying times. We believe that the proposed regulations by NYS banning “flower sales”  are preposterous, negligent and will Do more harm to the public - farmer and consumer alike - than good.   

We thank you for your support and look forward to celebrating with you in 2021 April too!
