2019 Hops Farm Tour + Field Day

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

This is a unique opportunity to get a closer look at hops production! Learn more about varieties, disease and insect management, harvesting, trellis systems, on-farm brewing and much more. The first stop is the experimental research hopyard at UMD-WMREC, where you will see 24 hop varieties under intensive management. After lunch on the farm, head over to Milkhouse Brewery at Still Point Farm for a look at a commercial brewery and hopyard in action.
