Default Hopyard Takes Root In Dodgeville, Wisconsin

DODGEVILLE, Wisconsin (May 27, 2010)--Today, Matt Sweeny announced the
launch of Simple Earth Hops, a Dodgeville, Wisconsin new farming
business, who will provide ethically grown hops to local beer
producers.

Simple Earth Hops is a new 1/4 acre hopyard located at Greenspirit
Farm CSA in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. The hopyard was founded with the
idea of providing a much needed agricultural product for local craft
brewers. Simple Earth Hops was established to demonstrate that local
farmers can produce a consistent, sustainable supply of ultra high
quality hops by working directly with local craft brewers while still
maintaining a focus on ecology, the land and the people involved.

"Craft beer producers have made it clear that they desire a local
source of hops. Simple Earth Hops will address this need for a local
sustainable supply of hops by small locally owned craft beer
producers."

Look for Simple Earth Hops to elaborate more on the details of a Grand
Opening hopyard tour/beer tasting event in late July, 2010 and for the
hopyard harvest tour & beer tasting in early Fall, 2011.

About Simple Earth Hops
Funding for Simple Earth Hops is provided in part by a 2009 NCR-SARE
(USDA) grant. This small-scale commercial hopyard has been established
by the Sweeny family of Dodgeville, Wisconsin who slowly grow earth
friendly hops for local brewers with similar locavore ethics.

Just too cool! How did you swing the grant? I want one!
I'd be curious to find out how much water you end up using (my supply is limited).
