Our hops are part of the LLBean Boots and Brews celebration of Maine craftsmanship. Fogtown Brewing in Ellsworth used our hops in their Wonderland Acadian Pale Ale.
University of Vermont (UVM)
The Hops team at the UVM extension has a wonderful page with ever updating information on all aspects of hops production.
Northeast Hop Alliance
The Northeast Hops Alliance (NeHA) is associated with Cornell’s cooperative extension, and has a wealth of information available.
Michigan State University
MSU extension also has great resources and information for interested growers.
Finally, the original “bible” of small-scale organic hops production (the only information available when we started long ago!) is available on Rebecca Kneen’s Crannog Ales website.
Since 2011, we have been fortunate to work with a USDA program called Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE), which provides grants and education to advance innovations in sustainable agriculture. We have also partnered with the University of Maine to build a small-scale hop baler, and received a Maine Technology (MTI) Seed Grant to fabricate a prototype hop harvester.
