Notes from our April Hops Growers Meeting
June 12, 2014 in research hop yard in Mills River
On April 22, 2014 fourteen hop growers and researchers from North Carolina and Virginia met in person and by phone to discuss hop growing. This is an informal gathering of the Southern Appalachian Hops Guild that takes place twice a year; usually in the late fall and early spring. We get together to share experiences and discuss the industry needs. I have included a link below to the notes that I took at that meeting. I removed people's names and identified them by their location instead. No one asked me to do this, but it just seemed wise with the internet. If you are on our hops email list, you will receive a copy of the notes with everyone's names included so you can contact them directly. The hop growers in our region are a wonderfully sharing bunch. That is going to help this industry in the long run.
