Learn to grow hops on a small scale at the Small Scale Mid-Atlantic Hops Growing workshop!

About this Event

Mountain View Hops is proud to present and host the Small Scale Mid-Atlantic Hops Growing workshop on June 22, 2019.

If you have ever been interested in learning how to grow hops in your own backyard or on a small one acre or less plot of land, then this is the workshop for you! Topics include planting, trellis designs, soil nutrients, pruning, pest/disease controls, harvesting, marketing, and more! There will be regular intermissions between the main presentation to network with fellow attendees.

This workshop is designed to educate, enlighten, and engage potential and current small scale hops growers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. This will be an all day event complete with presentations, guest speakers, and access to the MVH hop yard right next to the event.

The event will begin at 9 AM on June 22, 2019, and end around 3 PM. The workshop will be held under a tent; however, all hop yard walk-through's are conducted outside and subject to the weather conditions at the time. Please dress appropriately for the conditions and bring any rain gear, mud boots, sun glasses, etc. as needed. Snacks and drinks are welcome as the presentations will last for several hours with intermissions. No alcohol please. Smoking is allowed at designated areas. Restroom facilities and chairs will be provided. Lunch will also be provided with vegetarian options.

CURRENT SPEAKERS

Main Presentation:

Mark Clabaugh, a military veteran, has agriculture rooted deep in his family history with both sides of his family going back generations in dairy farming. Mark was heavily involved in the FFA program during high school where he was the Chapter president for 3 years and Regional president for 1 year. Mark received numerous awards during his time with the FFA to include two Star Chapter Agribusinessman Awards, three Federation Public Speaking awards, two State Public Speaking awards, and numerous Dairy Judging team awards. Mark was also a member of the FBLA and received a regional FBLA public speaking award and a state FBLA public speaking award.

Mark spent several years in the military, earning an honorable discharge in 2005, and spent almost 15 years in the automotive field. In the early spring of 2016, he decided that it was time to go back to his roots in agriculture and started a small hop yard. This hop yard grew over time and culminated in the creation of Mountain View Hops, LLC in the spring of 2018. For more information on MVH and the products they offer, please visit their website at www.mountainviewhops.com.
