After a bit of planning the past two months on our hop farm in Central Oregon, our projected 2015 growth looks like:

– An increase from 1,700 sq ft to over 31,000 sq ft
– An increase in hop plants (rhizomes in the ground) from 50 to over 600
– An increase in varieties in the field from 2 (Cascade & Centennial) to at least 4, maybe 5 (Galena, Sterling, & Mt. Hood)

Attached are a couple of 3D siteplans showing the new trellis/cable system in order to support future growth of plants for 100% production by 2018.
