Default Growing Hops Question

I want to grow some Hops for the locals. I own a farm and can grow most anything and was asked to try hops.

??? What kind to I try ??

Should I try something hard to get or rare? I have no problem with that

Could you please send reply's to my email

Instead of hard or rare, maybe something that would really grow well for the area and is a good common hop used in a bunch of beer styles? Maybe a Cascade for the all around hop and a Centennial or Columbus for something higher alpha acid?

How many rows, how much land. Hand picked hops?

I am a home gardener, picking hops are very time consuming, I love it. A farmer on the other hand might consider it a waste of time for the price of the product. You have to dry them , etc. A lot of YouTube videos on it.

Sorry to be a devils advocate on this issue. If you have the land and spare time, then go for it. You might end up growing them on a larger scale.

Cant go wrong with Cascade!
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!
