At The Bineyard, only the freshest quality hops will be produced. Unlike large, commercial hops farms, The Bineyard grows on a smaller scale, which means we can more delicately pick the hops straight off the bine and into your brew.
Upon harvest, our hops are on the dryer within the hour, then vacuum-sealed and freezer-stored to reduce oxygen contamination and ensure freshness.
Believe it or not, Central New York – and Madison County specifically – once ruled the hop industry. The state established national leadership in hop production in 1849, and was selling over three million pounds annually by 1855! The Bineyard wants to help bring this once prosperous industry back to where it belongs.
