All of our hops, peppers, and produce are grown on the East End of Long Island, NY. We are proud members of NOFA-NY and in the process of receiving our organic certification.

Our Columbia hops, 2018

Our Columbia hops, 2018




A tried and true workhorse hop that can be used for both bittering and aroma in the brew process by  adding a mild citrus flavor.  Best in Pale Ales, IPA, Porters, and Wheat beers. Alpha Acids:  5.5%  Beta Acids 5.0%


An almost forgotten hop that was developed by Budweiser but lost its starting role to Willamette.  This hop adds an aroma filled with crisp pineapple, bright  lemony citrus notes – strong but not as powerful as a Chinook.  Best used in lighter beers or when seeking a crisp finish (sound familiar) but try it out any way you like. Alpha Acids:  13%  Beta Acids:  4.0%



Hailing from the Northwest this beauty thrives in the Northeast as well..  The Willamette hop has been used by craft brewers for years and for good reason, it adds a well balanced aroma that is mild and pleasant, slightly spicy, fruity, floral, little earthy. Alpha Acids:  not available for 2018


A variety from New Zealand we have decided to experiment with, this high alpha aroma hop has notes of citrus, lemon peel, pine needles and spice.  Very good in IPAs and has an excellent oil profile allowing it to be used both an aroma and bittering hop. Alpha Acids: not available for 2018              

All I wanted was a beer and I ended up with an acre...
