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.
