Saturday, August 4, 2012: Time to Harvest the Hops at the Sulphur Creek Farm in Scottsboro, north of Nashville.  Sulphur Creek Farm is one of several CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) projects in the Beaman Park to Bells Bend Corridor north of Nashville, TN.  

For the past two summers, a small crop of hops have been grown under the supervision of Linus Hall, proprietor of the Yazoo Brewery.  After harvest, the hops will be brewed into the  Bells Bend Preservation Ale.
