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.

2010 Plantings

Big weekend at the farm. We planted over 200 new plants, split some of our existing plants, and layed out the location for the new trellis system. Next weekend, the new poles are going up and the last of the new plants are going in.

With assistance from our new friend Ryan (a.k.a. Jr. Sod Cutter), setting up the new rows went pretty quick. And with a little help from a lot of friends, we got a lot done.

We posted a few highlight pictures below - check out the rest of the pictures here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hopfarmer/sets/72157623714494169/ or click on the Flickr photostream on the right side of the page.
