Georgia tailback Nick Chubb said he has plans to get into farming after his playing days, but it won’t be the traditional kind, according to Bulldogs Coach Kirby Smart.
“I was kidding him last night, and we were talking about it,” Smart said. “I really didn’t understand the difference in an econ major and ag econ major, and Nick basically told me he was going to start his own hop farm. I had no idea what a hop farm was until I Googled it and looked at it.”
Chubb said he didn’t know about farming hops, a flavoring and stability agent in beer, until recently.
“I heard of it a week ago,” Chubb said on the SEC Network. “I kind of read over it. It is for breweries, for beer. I know in the past, it was not as popular. Too many people had it. People backed up, but nowadays it is kind of popular again. The idea sounded good to me.”
