"Sales is very easy to me. It's all about knowing people, caring for them, making sure you do what you say you'll do. It's that simple" [08:00]

"I'm a perfectionist. I need to make sure I see things go in a way I'm proud about. It's my family's heritage and my family's name - everything we produce, our name is on it. It's vital to me that when a product hit a person's plate there is total satisfaction." [33:00]

It’s hard to think about beer these days without thinking about hops. The runaway craft beer market’s convergence with the ever-expanding local foods movement is helping to spur a local-hops renaissance. The demand from craft brewers for local ingredients to make beer―such as hops and barley―is robust and growing. That’s good news for farmers looking to diversify, but the catch is that hops have not been grown commercially in the eastern United States for nearly a century. Learn more on a hoppy episode of The Farm Report as Erin Fairbanks is joined by Laura Ten Eyck and Dietrich Gehring, co-authors of The Hop Grower's Handbook: The Essential Guide for Sustainable, Small-Scale Production for Home and Market. Jimmy Carbone, host of Beer Sessions Radio is in the studio as well! This program was brought to you by Route 11 Potato Chips.

"Hops puts flavor in your glass. Everybody identifies craft beer with hops - and it's what took people away from commercial beer without any flavor." [06:00]

--Jimmy Carbone on Beer Sessions Radio

"New York was the epicenter for growing hops in the late 1800's. In 1880, 80% of the hops grown in the country were grown in New York State, many of those being grown int he area around Cooperstown." [09:00]

Happy birthday blueberries! This week on The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks chats with Amelie Aust of Fall Creek Nursery all about blueberries. Fall Creek supplies the majority of blueberry growers around the world with blueberry plants; Amelie is also president of the Blueberry Family Health Foundation, a nonprofit vehicle started by blueberry families for the industry to combine its resources to prevent type-2 diabetes in children. Later in the show, hear from Liz Neumark, founder and CEO of New York catering company Great Performances. This program was brought to you by Rt. 11.

"The thing about blueberries, once a plant is established - it should produce for 10, 15, 20 years! If you start with a really robust healthy vigorous disease free true to type blueberry plant - it pays dividends long term. If you start with quality, you get quality." [08:00]
