Workshop: Growing Hops in Eastern Ontario

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.

When: March 21, 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

Where: Two Rivers Food Hub, 361 Queen St, Unit 5000, Smiths Falls, ON

Cost: $30
