Our Hops

We’re fortunate to own land in Davie County, NC where the Yadkin River covered our property thousands of years ago, leaving our soil rich and loamy, a wonderful mixture of sand and clay. Check out our pictures and you’ll see that our first year rhizomes and plants have flourished by feeding off  the abundance of nutrients.


Our Story

First, you have to understand that all of us have been friends for years. Joe, Nancy, Jay and Liz, and boy are we having a blast growing these hops. We each bring talent to the hop field. Joe and Nancy are doctors by trade, but they have multiple, hidden talents. Joe is a wine connoisseur and his knowledge in that area is transferring to the hops. He has a sharp business sense and he’s our designated sales rep.


our mission

Be the flavor that brings people together.
