Learn How to Grow Hops

It's been a while since our last post and a long winter here on the farm, but due to some extraordinary warm weather, 84 degrees here today, we have had things going crazy to catch up in time for our April 13, Saturday event, "Learn How To Grow Hops" at the Hop'n Blueberry Farm.
It will be an great time to see first hand in the field what it takes to grow hops.  We have all of the visuals necessary for potential growers to learn techniques to successfully start hops from the ground up.
This Saturday the event starts at 1pm. with your host Van Burnette.  You will see how the beds are prepared and see one being started.  You will see how to select and prune your vines to grow.  You can witness Van's unique trellis system and see how the twine is placed on the cable down to the hop vine.
No questions will be unanswered and everyone is invited to go over to Pisgah Brewing Company afterwards for tasting and more touring of the Brewery.  Don't miss this hopping good opportunity to learn about the much talked about vine with the cones of flavor. 
Cost is $10/person. For more info call us at 828-664-1166.
