I have recently had the good fortune to be hired as my hometown’s Agriculture teacher, and with that, I am moving back to the family farm after over a decade. In that time, my parents have quit the dairy business, gotten much older, and are looking to me for the future of our farm. Restarting milking cows is out of the question (for right now) but I have been thinking about other agricultural ventures to pursue for a while now. I have been a home brewer for a few years and started growing my own hops last year. I have come to the conclusion that a hop farm would be a worthwhile pursuit. But, I have many questions about this such as how do I get started, what do I need and where do I get it, what varieties are recommended, and the big one…once I have hops, what do I do with them? I found you through the Wisconsin Hop Exchange page and thought that I would reach out to see if you would be willing to help. Coming from an agriculture background, I love the idea of being in a cooperative! Now to be frank, I am not being casually interested here…I am serious about starting a hop farm. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!Thank you very much!Jordan Liethenjmliethen@gmail.comTime: Monday May 20, 2013 at 11:35 pmIP Address: 184.108.40.206Contact Form URL:
