With an explosion in craft breweries in Ontario, as well as strong demand for locally sourced ingredients, now is a perfect time to consider the option of growing hops for commercial sale. In this workshop, you will learn from provincial researchers and experienced growers and brewers about:
- Market demand for hops: who is buying, and what do they want?
- Growing hops: start-up costs, sourcing materials, soil management, weed and pest control, harvesting, etc.
- Processing hops: do you need to process? What are your options?
Lunch will be provided by Bruce Wood, Chef at Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company.
