Event Details

Learn more about growing hops in the Northeast from the L’Etoile family at Four Star Farm and the University of Vermont Extension Northwest Crops and Soils Team! The L’Etoile’s have been farming in the Pioneer Valley for more than 25 years and are proud producers of locally grown grains, freshly milled flour, hops and turf. They plan to harvest three acres of hops this summer and have ten acres of hops in the ground by Spring 2014.

Join us for a tour of Four Star Farm and to learn about growing hops, including planning, budgeting, building the hop yard, picking/harvesting, drying, compacting and packaging. Equipment demonstrations include a Wolf harvester, custom built drying system and compactor.

The UVM Extension Northwest Crops and Soils Team will be there to provide research updates on fertility requirements, variety selection, pest management and other best management practices.

Registration is $15 and includes lunch.  Register online by August 9, 2013 at www.uvm.edu/extension/mahops
