Williamson will turn over the dried stalks to Ecovative Design, a Green Island, New York company making biodegradable packaging. Ecovative Design gave Williamson seed to grow 4-acres of flaxseed plants as a test crop. He will retain and crush the seeds to make flaxseed oil to sell to cosmetics and food companies.
