Hey guys! My friend has a bunch of open land in south-central PA and he's going to let me grow behind his blacksmith shop. Has anybody had good results in this area? Any particular breeds I should start with?

south-central PA should be great for hops. my standard go-to first-timer suggestions are cascade, centennial, columbus and nugget. this assumes you like american pale ale/ipas.
What hops should I grow? Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking:soured TYB Saison Brett Blend, local sour cherry kriek, oud bruin, saison bottled with ECY34
Carbing: Ardennes BDSA, apricot golden sour
Aging: 3726 saison w/ brett x2 (dregs mix & Lochristi), witbier w/ brett, sour cherry mead, rye sour ECY20/ECY34 split, acerglyn, several other sours & stuff i've lost track of...

You know I am in Halifax and they grow great here. Just test the soil I am ph and N defient here.
Got Hops?

There is no problem to big or small not to be fixed by enough beer!
Just do not have your beer held hostage by the wife or you will never get anything halfway done!
