The Beatles icon and legendary singer-songwriter Sir Paul McCartney stated that the latest addition to his farm is hemp, but he has to hide the crops to keep them away from teenage thieves.

His family farm in Peasmarsh near Rye is following government regulations to grow hemp alongside his other crops. “We grow crops, I like doing things like spelt wheat, rye, we grow peas,” he said.

“We’re actually just getting into growing hemp; the thing with government regulations is you’ve got to keep it where people can’t see it because you get all the kids coming in and robbing it!”

Paul, 79, went into detail regarding his organic farm and way of life. “I went organic over 20 years ago. When I first bought the farm, there were some fields where my farm guys would say, ‘There are no worms in these fields. There’s no life.’ That’s because basically all you did was put on pesticides and then put fertilizer in.”

McCartney began smoking weed in 1964 thanks to singer-songwriter Bob Dylan who introduced him to the plant. He’s even gotten in trouble with the law over cannabis possession in places like Sweden and Barbados.

However, his relationship with cannabis smoking came to an end in the 2000s. “I don’t do it anymore. Why? The truth is, I don’t really want to set a bad example for my kids and grandkids. It’s now a parent thing,” he admitted.
