More hops on the farm

I worked with Brett the other day on transplanting successful hops strains from our test plot at the brewery to elsewhere on the farm. A total of three 300 foot long rows were plowed and rhysomes of chinook and cascade were added to two of the rows, while nugget rhysomes that we ordered were added to the 3rd row. It's our goal to eventually grow most of our own bittering and aroma hops.
