 Come see the 12 varieties in our 4th year hop yard for side by side comparisons of variety performance. Learn about two of our biggest pests: downy mildew and spider mites, how to identify them, the damage they cause, and control strategies. We will have microscopes in which to view the spider mites, and a raffle for your very own hand lens! Learn about our new experiment with topping the plants. Come share you own experiences and learn from others. No registration necessary.
