Interested in growing hops?
Here you will find all you need to know about growing hops in the Great Lakes Region. Recent hop shortages, growing appeal with specialty beers, and the desire for organic and locally sourced agricultural products have resulted in increasing interest in local hop production by farmers, brewers, and backyard enthusiasts throughout Michigan. If you are new to hops production or just interested in learning about this novel crop, please visit the Getting Started page for information. Finally, the 2012 Hop Growers of America Statistical Report has been released. Enjoy!
Filling out your 2012 USDA NASS Ag Census? Hops should go under Section 6 - Field Crops with the code 623, reported as total acres and pounds produced.
