TEAM

Franny Tacy
Franny Tacy
Owner, Board Member, CEO

Franny is a board member but does not manage daily operations. Franny is the first female hemp farmer in NC and has entered the scene with a force behind education and collaboration. The story begins at their farm in Asheville and now Franny is co-owner of their vertically integrated hemp business Franny’s Farmacy. They grow, process, manufacture and distribute their branded product lines to their dispensaries, wholesale and online customers in every state. Franny also participates in the hemp Research Trials with NC State and is a founder of the non-profit Women in Hemp non-profit. She has degrees and work experience in Forestry and Education and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over a decade. She has been in Asheville since 1999. Along with husband Jeff and son Zach, friends and family, they built their family farm in winter of 2012. It now serves as an agritourism hub welcoming visitors from all over the world to stay over in one of their many lodging options, celebrate a farm wedding and do yoga with goats. 

Farmer Franny is on a mission to share her hemp knowledge and is paving the way for farmers in her state and beyond. Look for her TedX talk, listen and learn about the obstacles she faced growing a crop that is federally illegal and how it’s turning into a positive movement for “Women in Hemp,” hemp growers, artisans processors and businesses with aligned “farmer focused” values. Franny and husband Jeff have opened multiple CBD Dispensaries, called Franny’s Farmacy, and are now offering franchises. They are taking their hemp from plant to processing to product offering tinctures, topicals, smokeables, vap hardware, edibles, pet line and more. Seed to Shelf ~ Hemp and Health!

Franny's Farm Inc is her primary job. She works with the issuer 10 hours a week.

Mandy Overstreet

Mandy Overstreet

Manufacturing Director

Mandy spends at least 40 hours per week managing production, ensuring quality control and general operations.  

I spent the first part of my life in Alpharetta, GA, and then moved to Athens, GA when I was in high school. I stayed there for college, and graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Financial Planning. My husband Walker and I decided to move to Asheville shortly after college as we loved everything this wonderful town has to offer. While working in the financial industry and then in marketing, I started my own business on the side. My business was called Mandelin Naturals, and I focused on making natural bath and body products. After my first two sons were born (I have three total), I decided to quit my normal 9-5 and focus on my business full time. It was through this business that I met Franny and Jeff Tacy, vending at an event on their farm called Barnaroo. As Franny's Farmacy took off, I began to do more and more business with them on their topical line. They asked me to join the team in April as the Manufacturing Director, and I was more than happy to accept! I am a huge believer in the healing benefits of hemp, and could not think of a company that better represents my values and beliefs than Franny's Farmacy.

Michael Carlson

Michael Carlson

Vice President of Sales and Marketing

Michael spends an average of 10-15 hours per week managing sales and marketing for the manufacturing business. The rest of his time (30-40 hours/week) is spent doing sales and marketing for the wholesale and online business.  

I am thrilled to join the Franny's Farmacy team as Vice President of Sales & Marketing. We are committed to supporting the health and wellness of our customers and community through our innovative organic farm; network of principled partner producers and institutions; and traceable seed-to-shelf hemp and CBD products.

Historically, I have a wide-ranging background in business development. I cut my teeth at the world's largest language services company, TransPerfect, opening a regional office and helping grow it to over 30 employees, with exponential revenue growth over that 8 year period. From there, I followed my passion for technology and grew several software companies in areas like B2C personalization, B2B Account-Based Marketing, Employee Engagement, Recruiting, and Workflow Optimization. I am skilled in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Sales, Marketing, Management, Software as a Service (SaaS), and Corporate Partnership Development.

Ever the analytical, data-driven mind - I also have a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Northern Illinois University. 

Patty Lemone

Patty Lemone

Production Manager

Patty works 40+ hours per week as the production manager. She's responsible for production and quality control under the supervision of Mandy.

I’ve called the beautiful mountains of WNC my home for almost twenty nine years! I am a proud mother of two children, along with a menagerie of rescue pets. I grew up on a small farm in Weston, Connecticut. I come from a large family which has nurtured my love for plants, animals and cooking. 

I've been an advocate for cannabis for as long as I can remember. When this industry opened its doors, I immediately dove in. Being a Horticulturist, I truly understand all of the benefits of this multipurpose plant. With a heart full of empathy, I know I could fulfill my dream of helping others. From being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, bilateral carpal tunnel, and osteoarthritis, this has only further enhanced my love of healthy eating. I've also begun making my own tinctures and an array of tasty edibles. 

I've been with Franny’s Farmacy for well over a year now, and I can honestly say it has been a wonderful experience! I've had the pleasure of working in the dispensaries, along with the construction of new facilities, and even starting up the distribution center. I now reside in manufacturing where the magic happens. I can honestly say “I love my job!”  

Chase Jacobus

Chase Jacobus

Production Associate

Chase works 40+ hours per week making Franny's Farmacy products.

I reached out to the Franny's Farmacy brand after getting out of the military and not being satisfied with where I was working or what career I was working towards. I found the Franny's website and immediately fell in love with the people and the brand. I made it my goal to try to work with Franny's in any way I could. I moved up to the farm in May of 2019 and worked on the farm all summer until after harvest. At that point I had an interest in working at the manufacturing facility alongside Mandy and Patty. They have been extremely welcoming and helpful and I have learned so much while working with them. It has been so fulfilling to be able to contribute to a company I trust and believe in every single day and I couldn't thank the people that have given me this opportunity enough.

Women Leading The Cannabis Industry: “The pace at which this industry is developing is staggering, Franny Tacy

Cannabis is not business as usual! There is not much intuitive about succeeding in this insanely emerging cannabis business. You have to have a dynamically skilled team that thinks beyond the box, navigates politics and legalities, makes profits and manages growth in an unconventional industry.

Women leading way as hemp revival sweeps Western North Carolina

What’s fueling the growth in North Carolina hemp production

A growing number of North Carolina's farmers are turning to hemp production as a new source of revenue, spurred by the popularity of CBD products and the Trump administration's trade war with China, which has hit the state's tobacco industry especially hard by decimating the export market.

Our newest product offering and much anticipated product release of our Small Batch Reserve Delta-8 Gummies are now available online! Delta-8 THC has not been widely available in past years outside of medical cannabis markets, but this special cannabinoid is federally legal.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDS

We want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!

SECURE

Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
