It looks like the annual picking of the hops will be this coming Thursday August 14th. I counted 275 vines this year, so the picking will probably take at least four hours. We will start picking around 4 pm and go until finished. Volunteers can count on a fun experience of picking the essential ingredient in the Bells Bend Preservation Ale, with plenty of Yazoo beer along with your hop picking companions. Volunteers will also get a case of this years' Bells Bend Preservation Ale and free admission and beers at the Hop Harvest Square Dance party later on in the fall when the beer is released.
If you would like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for directions to the farm.
