What does a partnership entail? Are you looking for a business partner, or something like a CSA partner? An investor, or someone actively involved?

I think a hops CSA where users buy hop shares sounds pretty cool, and I bet you'd get a lot of bites here.

A mix of investor and working partner would be the most desirable.Your idea of a Hop CSA is really great.Cheers Glen

Good luck, Glen. I'm glad this season is over. Time to see if my family still exists.

Glen, do you sell your hops through Seven Bridges? I bought some organic cascade hops through them from a Colorado hop farm, so thought it might be yours. If it was, I love those cascades! Really outstanding.

And I'd really be interested in a CSA arrangement on an organic hop farm - that is a great idea.

Dan, are you a hop farmer, too? I looked on your profile and couldn't find any info.
