Southern Appalachian Hops Guild Growers

Blue Ridge Hops

from our view -- to your brew

Nestled in the mountains of Madison County, North Carolina, Blue Ridge Hops began producing top quality organic hops in 2008. We are a USDA certified organic farm and we take pride in the attention we give our plants.

Unlike the large hops producers of the Pacific Northwest who grow hundreds of acres of hops and harvest them with machines all at once, we harvest our cones by hand over several days, selecting cones at their peak maturity. We dry the cones on site, on the same day of harvest, to assure no reduction in quality. For brewers interested in "wet hopping" we can arrange for delivery of cones within hours of harvest. We anticipate this year's harvest will begin in late July and run through mid-August. Our hops are available to local microbreweries as well as home brewers.

We grow both aroma and bittering varieties, including:
Cascade Willamette Nugget Fuggle Magnum
