A Hop Farm 2
The Humble Hayhoe Hop Crop
"New hop vines are visible 100 yards behind my old Virago"
Near the southern end of Springfield Line (between Port Burwell and Port Bruce, north of Nova Scotia Line) lies a hop farm - two or three acres in size. Only a small portion of the poles now support hop vines, but in the future I expect the business to expand as Ontario's craft brewers find opportunities to enter the growing craft beer market.
