Interested in growing hops? Not sure where to start? This workshop is for you!
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?
This event is organized by the Two Rivers Food Hub, Just Food and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
Lunch provided by Bruce Wood, Chef at Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company.
Seating is limited.
