Back in the 1880’s, New York was the leader in hops production, producing over 90% of the hops in the United States. As a result of two devastating diseases, downy and powdery mildew, the production of hops declined. In 1920 prohibition provided the final blow to the production of hops in New York and the industry was wiped out.
The recent passing of the New York State Farm Brewery Legislation has kick started this once booming industry back to life. Farm breweries are popping up left and right and so are the number of hop growers within the state. With this new revolution comes many questions from folks interested in growing hops. To help address these questions, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County is offering a regional Beginning Hops Class.
The program presenters include: Steve Miller, Cornell Cooperative Extension Hops Specialist addressing “What you need to know in growing hops. Rick Pedersen, one of the most experienced hops growers in New York State, speaking on the evolution of his operation, where he started and where he is today. Chris and Brian , Climbing Bines, will address, what brewers are looking for when purchasing hops.
Fee: $25.00/person which includes lunch. Registration: contact Cornell Cooperative Extension Ontario County, 585-394-3977 x 427 or email Nancy with your name, address, and phone number.
