This carboy is filled with home brewed beer.

I’ve always felt like if we can get the category to grow, get more people to drink craft beer and be thoughtful about their choices about what they’re drinking, that we’ll get our fair share of the up side of the category growth.

Doug Dayhoff is the president of Upland Brewing Company. Craft brewing came out of home brewing, and Upland pays tribute to that history with its UpCup home brew competition. The winner will have his or her beer brewed and sold at Upland.

Two stories from Harvest Public Media about the growing, and yet still controversial, hemp movement in American agriculture.

And two recipes with Chef Daniel Orr, one using beets and the other for some charming tea sandwiches.
