Just placed orders for another 100 rhizomes for Windy Hill, which will put us at 220 plants this year assuming they all make it! We will now have Cascades, Nuggets, Willamettes, and Chinook. These are certified organic, which should make our path to becoming certified a little faster. We have also ordered enough malting barley to grow about a 1/3 acre to see how it does and see if we can figure a way to malt it. Stay tuned for invitations to our threshing party in the summer. If all goes well we can do a small batch estate ale in the fall.
