A crazy farmer decided to start up a hop farm near my shop. That’s not too unusual, another farmer around the corner from me is growing 10 acres of legal hemp for the fiber and CBD market. Love our creative Colorado farmers! For those of you who don’t know, I used to call myself a creative Colorado farmer as well, selling grass fed beef and other pasture raised yumminess. But all of this brewery work was keeping me too busy and the farm was just breaking even, not too hard to cut the strings when decision time came.
See this page for more information about the farm and contact information; they have Cascade, Chinook, Crystal and Nugget hops ready this fall.
