Ocean State Hops is bringing hops back to Rhode Island. Fueled by a passion to cram as many hops into each batch of beer as humanly possible, we decided to start growing our own. And with our recent expansions, we are happy to be able to supply hops to other brewers looking to quench their thirst for hops.

Hail to the Small Scale Hop Farmers

There is an article on small scale hop farmers in the December 2009 issue of Brew Your Own magazine. It touches on the benefits of smaller hop farms and some of the difficulties they face. Glen Fuller of Colorado Organic Hops in Paonia, Colorado and James Altwies of Gorst Valley Hops in Mazomanie, Wisconsin, two of the more well-known small scale hop farmers, were both interviewed for the article.

You can check out the article here. It's worth the read.

Do you know of any other small scale hop farms out there? Let us know! Send an email to oceanstatehops@gmail.com with the farm name and/or contact information.
