The Process

Hop Growing and Purchasing

We maintain a significant presence in the hop industry as a vertically integrated company.  At the farm level we grow a substantial number of commercial hop varieties as well as newer, internally developed varieties with improved agronomic performance.  Our farms and managers set the industry standard for agricultural practices and sustainability.  We interact with hop growers from all growing locations on a regular basis throughout the year and only purchase hops that meet our stringent quality standards.
