Howdy from beautiful Travis County, Texas. My name is DeAnn and we live on a beautiful rural property in the eastern part of the county - rich bottom land with no rock or cactus. I am married to an organic gardener and am going to begin growing hops this Spring, with an eye to providing local brewers with high quality, wholly environmentally-controlled plants. I am interested in knowing which species are favored, anyone's experience growing hops, whatever you would be willing to share. Thank you - I'm excited about the prospects. And if you live in or near Austin, perhaps you might like to become a customer!
