The Hop Yard

Hops are not our hobby, It is about growing the most consistent high quality hops possible, by using the same farming practices we have over that last 160 years. Before planting any hills, we search our 6000+ acres of land for the best spot possible. This is where we found the 30 acres of rich loamy soil that is over 20 foot deep. This allows the roots to drill deep, growing the most flavorful and consistent hops possible. Since we were building from the ground up, we integrated a state of the art irrigation and fertigation system that is able spoon feed plants when necessary. To further insure our hops are consistent we use variable rate fertilizing from grid sampling. This 100’s of soil samples tell us exactly where extra nutrition is needed then applied by a GPS control system to get the perfect rate and mixture to those areas.
