Hops and Heifers Hops!

Early morning Cones

The hop plants at Hops and heifers are thriving many over the top of the trellis wire.  It is amazing how fast these plants grow. Planted only about 9 weeks ago they are over 12 feet tall, that’s an average of 5.25 inches of growth per day!  We are now preparing for some outstanding fresh hopped beer, working with Dave, Tim and Eric at the breweries.  Keep a close watch out for their release, be the first to enjoy the fruits of our labor!  All but the Mt. Hood will produce significant cones this first year, we could not be more pleased with the overall vigor of the whole crop.  Keep checking back for more updates! Thanks!
