Hop Farming Update #679130

Asked January 14, 2021, 9:22 AM EST

I have a small farm in Worcester County. I am interested in exploring hops as a commercial crop. I have read the field guide published in 2018. I would like to know if there are any updates since the hops growers guide was published? I am interested to know if there has been any growth in acres planted, commercial market opportunities, and successful varieties (both agricultural and market success).
