At Aroostook Hops in Westfield, Maine, Krista Delahunty, Jason Johnston and their three children (Kathleen, Marie and Elise) grow MOFGA-certified organic hops. They have been growing the crop for over 11 years. They produce five varieties of hops on 4 acres and supply fresh and pelletized hops to many Maine breweries. Organic production is important to them because they are both biologists and "have always paid attention to potentially harmful chemicals in our environment." Aroostook Hops values organic soil-building practices in organic production, but most of all the farmers value avoiding the use of synthetic chemicals that may have unknown negative health effects. Find their products at https://aroostookhops.com and https://www.etsy.com/shop/AroostookHops.
