The Hop Grower’s Handbook: The Essential Guide for Sustainable, Small-Scale Production for Home and Market

by Laura Ten Eyck and Dietrich Gehring, 266 pages, 8x10, softcover. What comes to mind when you think of hops? Ornamental vines, medicinal tea and…beer! Hop farming in the Northeast, once the center of North American hop production, became a lost skill since the industry moved west. When New York hop farmers Ten Eyck and Gehring began to grow hops and build a brewery, there weren’t any local references to turn to. After creating a successful business, they wrote their own manual, which covers the hop plant’s rich history, site and soil preparation, trellising, pest and disease management, harvesting, processing, marketing and beer-brewing. They give considerable attention to the potential for growing hops in more challenging humid climes. Beer recipes, black-and-white photos and diagrams accompany well-organized text. A worthwhile read for micro-farmers, single-vine-growing plant geeks, and beer enthusiasts. -Jen Ries
