Who's your farmer?
For our 7th year out here in Cornhill, we've decided to go with a new name, and new approach. Here now at Lunahops, we still grow with organic love and dance moves, but this year we've added a variety of veggies and herbs to the mix. We are proud to bring organic hops to the region, and even more so to be in business with the Picaroons' crew. We will still focus on hops, but are adding more diversity to the land. Pop by for a visit, bring beer... and pizza :)
After three years of planning and research following the discovery of a feral hop plant growing wild up a tree, the building of my hopyard began in the fall of 2013. With the advice of experts, and attention to detail, a passion for plants and the right equipment, I have finally realized my dream of producing quality hops for use in local beers.
Established by Glen and Wade Beaton in 2013, My Father's Farm is settled on the red soils of the south shore of Prince Edward Island, overlooking the Northumberland Strait. With help from brother Brian, Glen and Wade are working to produce hops of the highest quality.
Nick and Kathryn Southan, located in Wicklow, NB, are PROUD 4th generation farmers; Nick's great grandfather started farming on their land in the early 1900's. They grow 3 variety of hops, on 5 acres of land, as well as 7 varieties of raspberries on a 1/2 acre. They LOVE agriculture - they LOVE beer. Need we say more?
Wallace Ridge Farm is a family run Hop farm located in Malagash, Nova Scotia, where the only thing that grows faster than the plants are the two young boys who call the farm home. Allen and Jacqui Cole preside over the hop yard, just a stone’s throw from the family home. In the summer months the plants grow taller in the light of bonfires and to the sound of laundry being hung to dry. Allen and Jacqui are thrilled to be partnering with Picaroons.
Charles and Jessy are a pair of goofballs who took the plunge and started a market garden/hopyard operation in 2009 on the beautiful Amherst shore. They are of the mind that good food and beer are among the finest things in life, and are delighted to be growing ingredients for both!
