North Carolina State University Article

This is a posted article in the NCSU Perspectives On Line about my hops farm.

My farm continues to be envolved with as much reseach as we can get our hands on. I am very excited to be a part of what may be a new and upcoming food industry here in the state.

    hey van! this article is very interesting and I'm glad you're hopping on the hops bandwagon (hahaha), considering the hyped-up risk. can the beer brewed using hops from your farm be bought all around NC or just in the asheville area?
    john "the dude" and i would love to come to one of your so-called barn raisings next summer, if possible. in the meantime, we'll keep reading your blog and supplying you with lots of insight and additional farming tips we've gathered mainly from picking blueberry bushes in our backyard in Maine....
