TASTE THE TERROIR
Southwest Michigan is an ideal region to raise hops for many of the same reasons why fruit has been produced here since the 1860s. It comes down to rich soils and the Lake Effect. At Hop Head Farms, we have taken great care when deciding where to plant. 80% of our fields are located within 10 miles or less of the Lake Michigan shoreline and for good reason.
In this historic fruit belt, the glacial soils are predominately sandy loams where hops thrive. Because our soils are sandy, they drain well and promote rapid, deep root development, yet they contain the right amount of clay content to make them very fertile and hold moisture for plants to thrive. Quality is born from the soil.
Michigan Chinook checks all the boxes of spice, pine, resinous, with bright aromas of juicy pineapple unique to the region. Hops from Michigan allow the brewer to taste the place where they were grown and bring in unique flavors from classic varieties.
