Unusual Crop Being Produced In Lyon County

Hoppy Trail Hops FarmInwood, Iowa — An unusual crop for northwest Iowa is being grown at a farm near Inwood.

Instead of the usual corn and soybeans, Mark Bonnema of Hoppy Trails Hops Farm, tells us about the crop he grows.

Bonnema says hops has just one major use.

We asked Bonnema how he got started growing hops.

He says he discovered that he needed to either grow his operation, or get out of it altogether.

Bonnema says that growing hops is a lot of hard work.

Bonnema says if you’d like to know more about Hoppy Trails, or growing hops, in general, visit Hoppy Trails on Facebook.  Or, he says, you can call him at 605-261-8260.
