Quality hops grown to organic standards in northern Maine's legendary soil

You are invited to Aroostook Hops’ 5th annual Hops Party

Date: Monday, September 1st, 2014

Time: 10 am – 4 pm, with hopyard tours at 11am and 2pm

 Have you ever driven by Aroostook Hops and wondered what all those tall poles are for, and what that plant is growing up the trellis?  Visit Aroostook Hops for a public field day to see what hops look like, and learn about how they are grown and harvested.  Come see our new mechanical harvester in action! 

 Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and drinks will be available for purchase all day. 

 Directions: Our address is 513 Shorey Road in Westfield.  Heading south on the Houlton Road, take a right at the “four corners” in Westfield, where Finishing Touch Auto Body is located.  We are the third house on the left (about 3/4 mile down the road). 

 Questions?  Contact us at krista@aroostookhops.com or call 429-8105.

Aroostook Hops is a small family farm that started growing hops in Westfield, Maine in 2009.  Our mission is to produce excellent quality whole hops for brewing, and rhizomes for propagation using organic farming methods. 

We are surrounded by beautiful rural views of Mars Hill Mountain (with its 28 wind turbines) to the east, Aroostook State Park's Quaggy Jo Mountain to the northwest, and a mix of rolling farm fields and woods all around. 


In our 1 acre mature hopyard, we grow four varieties: Nugget, Cascade, Centennial, and Willamette.  In 2012, we added another 3 acre hopyard (bringing us up to a total of 4 acres of hops) and added a new variety - Mount Hood.
