Only One Month till the Hops Conference in North Carolina!
The South Atlantic Regional Hops conference is coming up really soon. Have you registered yet? We have plenty of room for attendees for the Saturday educational program, but if you want to go on the Friday tour, too, there are only 28 tickets left that include the tour (that was at 3:30 pm on 2/24/2017). This is going to be a great conference specifically for and about Southern hop production. There are bigger hops conferences in the north and out west, but hops production is region specific. We have issues with day length, heat, and humidity that they don't have in those other regions. Even our soils are very different from those in the Pacific Northwest. So, if you want to learn how to grow hops in the South, this is the conference to attend. If you want to buy hops from Southern growers, this is the conference to attend. If you just want to hang out with a lot of really fun, optimist, entrepreneurial people, this is the conference to attend.
We still have room for sponsors and exhibitors, too. Here is the link to the Conference Website:
Here is the program for Saturday (and the tour information is below that):
