Would you become a member of a cooperative which would be a hop farm for homebrewer?

  1. Sure, I would pay for it but not time to invest in.

    Don't worry too much about them if the hops can get up 5 or 6 ft before they start munching. Sometimes they munch on mine but just leaves and not bines. Removing the lower 3 to 4ft of leaves is recommended to guard against powdery mildew and other diseases that get splashed up from the soil.

    1st year for my hop field. Last year, our horses and cows really enjoy eating hops leaves. This year, horses and cows can't reach the hops vines, but deers can.
