Welcome To Dutchess Hops!

Eastern View Nursery, located at 1167 Noxon road in Lagrangeville, NY is home to Dutchess Hops. Carmine Istvan, owner of Eastern View Nursery along with Farm Director Justin Riccobono, felt there was a void amongst the fast growing craft beer industry and Dutchess Hops was founded.

Dutchess Hops is the first commercial hop farm in the Hudson Valley. Situated in the heart of Dutchess County’s agricultural region, Dutchess Hops is bringing back an industry that the State of New York once controlled. Our mission is to provide an quality grown hop to brewers in New York state. We planted 4000 hills (hop plans) on 4 acres that will be ready to harvest in fall 2014.

 

Hop varieties include:

  • Cascade
  • Centennial
  • Alpharoma
  • Newport
  • Willamette
  • Ultra
  • Fuggle
  • Liberty
  • Teamaker

All hops plants are certified disease free and have been acquired through Cornell Universities disease free program. Hop availability will be as soon as fall 2013 in limited quantities so be sure to arrange your order today.

Dutchess Hops will also be providing plants, hop yard consultations and installs along with processing and packaging for hop farmers in the Hudson Valley.
