Description

Learn to grow one of the Mid-Atlantic’s hottest specialty crops: hops! Join Future Harvest CASA and Brookeville Beer Farm for an introductory growers’ clinic.

Are you an aspiring hops grower? Learn how to select a hopyard site, predict your labor needs, and navigate common fungal disease and pest pitfalls during this introductory clinic. Grower presentations and a brief tour of Brookeville Beer Farm’s (BBF) hopyard from 12-2 pm precede a pizza and beer tasting at 2 pm. Must be 21 to participate in the beer tasting.

Are you a grower interested in supplying products for BBF’s future brews? Join BBF Co-owner Phil Muth at 3 pm to discuss pre-sale opportunities. Pre-sale networking is free and open to the public. Please pre-register for the pre-sale.

On June 6, 2018, join Future Harvest CASA and Brookeville Beer Farm for a second hops field day on spring and summer hop care and maintenance. Save the date!
