Year: 2016

2016 Education

Hop Growers of Michigan’s summer farm tours this year are in the record books for 2016! The season for learning from the tours was excellent and the weather cooperated for everyone of them and plenty of knowledge was shared!

The importance for visiting and learning from commercial growers is a key effort that we believe is vital to understanding, what it takes to grow hops successfully. Right from the folks that are using growing practices for the highest yields and committed to quality.

Three farms this year opened their gates to the public. Many questions were answered by having the grower and equipment used right on sight. This year the three farms chosen were members of HGM that ranged in size and location within the state. High Five Hops of Marshall, Hop Head Farms Baroda location and Pine Ridge Farms of Custer.

A lot of planning and hard work goes into hosting a tour. We say THANK YOU for your hospitality and dedication to this industry!! Always great food… and of course beer brewed from the area with local hops consumed!!

2017 is looking to be another great year of education by HGM! If you are interested in hosting a tour next year please contact us…

Until then success to you and yours in growing the hop fields of your dreams through desire, hard work and education partnered with Hop Growers of Michigan!
