Bringing hops production and processing to rural communities for a new generation of Farmers and Brewers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

We want to bring hop Farmer’s finished products to the Commonwealth’s growing number of craft breweries efficiently and cost-effectively. We’re helping the Craft beer industry in Pennsylvania by taking the first steps towards meeting the overwhelming demand for local hops!

Working with Commonwealth Hops enables current and aspiring Pennsylvania hops farmers to bridge the processing gaps that prevent the widespread use of local hops by our breweries. A partnership of two Pennsylvania hops farmers; Tess Weigand of Happy Valley Hop Yard in Coburn (Centre County) and Joshua Brock of Hoffman Appalachian Farm in Saint Marys (Elk County) – each with successful hop yards and a combined fifteen years of hands-on agricultural experience.
