Making the first cut. 

    Not a bad yield for second year growth!
 Off to the "Pluck and Cluck" gang!
Eagle Valley Hops Estate is grateful to all the
fabulous "hop-eteers" who gave up their
time to help get the 2012 crop harvested.
We are blessed to have so many good people in our lives!!

Eagle Valley Hops Estate is on its way to harvesting for the first time. Jumping in to the fray two years ago, we invested heavily, especially in the sweat equity department. After a rocky start to the 2012 growing season, battling flooding and cold temperatures, the dog days of summer kicked in and sent our crop spiralling skyward. Those incredible plants grew a foot a day, budding into tender lupulin laden cones awaiting the harvesting process.
