Work is picking up around the farm. We have had much interest about our future hops crop from North Carolina brewers. The ground for the barley test plot will be prepared soon, and clearing of unwanted trees and shrubs is constantly ongoing.

JG Farms is up and running. A fall planting of 6-row barley is being laid out and seeding will commence in early October. This is just a small planting as a test of our grain growing and grain malting abilities. The hop yard is being laid out and expands everyday in our minds. It looks now that we will grow hops in two seperate yards. Any brewers interested in seeing certain varieties of hops are invited to give their recommendations.
