Default Investing in Hop's?

So i am sitting around being the young entrepreneur that i am and started to think... I wonder if i could buy some stock in Hop Farms?.... Does anyone know if any of these hop farms are traded publicly? and if any are there any tickers someone could throw my way?

You would probably be better off buying AIG or GM stock.

Can you deal in hops on the commodities market?

I am by no means an expert, but this article can get you started in your research:
Beer and The Commodities Market - Answering Service Resources | Specialty Answering Service
Also, there are Hops reports put out on world wide hops markets. You can invest in futures on any publicly traded (co ops) hops but I'm not sure of the ins & outs. This is interesting and I may do some research. Good Luck - Dwain

That link totally reads like it is computer generated.

I agree, I think the useful info is in the first paragraph. It says that mostly branded products aren't treated as commodities. Also, specialty use items are treated differently. I'm not sure what this means but at least I think it can generate enough questions for the OP to start his research. - Dwain

If you are serious and have some "extra capital" or have the ability to liquidate some assets, here is a site that outlines startup cap needed, where to have your business etc... I am with you in that I would like to diversify my port and invest in something like this as well. Not so much of a hands on guy so no early mornings at the farm. But it is still interesting.
