Hello! It has been just over a year since our last update and we felt it was time to send another update! :) We had another very successful year at the hop yard. We harvested and sold almost 450 lbs of hops this year. Much of it went to Kane Brewery in Ocean Township, NJ. They brewed their Oast House Head High again for the 3rd year and this year introduced Deep Rooted, an all wet hopped beer made with our hops. In addition, Triumph Brewery in Princeton, NJ and New Hope, PA created their Oast House IPA. We also delivered our hops to our CSA members and several home brewers had fun creating their brews with our hops! Also, The Bent Spoon in Princeton, NJ made a lemon hop sorbet using our hops. Unfortunately, we were not fast enough to get there to taste it but we heard it was wonderful by our friends who made it in time!
We had over 20 volunteers this year working to help harvest all the hops. Each hop was hand picked, weighed and packed up by our wonderful volunteers. It was a long 12 hours!

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your support! It was been quite a ride and we are having a ball!
