Small Scale Hops Production – the next steps will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17 at CLEREL: Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory, 6592 W. Main Road, Portland.
It is presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program as part of their 2017-2018 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series.
This workshop will build upon last year’s Small Scale Hops Production L.E.A.F. workshop. To give participants an opportunity for a firsthand look at a hop yard, we will be meeting at the Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory in Portland. There will be classroom lectures, tours of the CLEREL hopyards, mobile hops harvester and drying operation as well as plenty of time for questions and answers.
Whether you are new to hops or have some in the ground, this workshop will provide the opportunity to gain the research-based knowledge to make growing hops less mysterious. As a portion of the workshop will be held outside, so dress appropriately for the weather.
The instructor will be Tim Weigle, Senior Extension Associate with the NYS IPM Program who has been working with hops for eight years.
The cost is $5 per family.
Pre-registration is required prior to the workshop to allow for adequate time to prepare printed resources and materials.
