Hop farmer

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

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.”
