Farming for Craft Breweries

We’re not only farmers, we are part of the craft revolution in NYS. After developing Hudson Valley’s first commercial Hop Farm (Dutchess Hops), we developed an additional 8 Hop Farms over the last 2 years. Whether they are existing farms that have been saved from development, looking to diversify their crop portfolio or new farmers just getting into the ground, each share a concern for local agriculture, a belief in the NYS craft beverage industry, and a love of community.
