Locally-Grown Hops in Decatur County, Indiana

History

Spring Hill Hops is a family-based hops farm. We wanted to create a business out of the land our family has managed and farmed for decades.  We also wanted to be apart of a new agribusiness that works alongside and directly with Indiana and mid-western businesses. We also have heard and received great community excitement and help through our hops yard stages of growth.

We strive very much to make this hops yard about the community and the people we have lived with for years.  We look forward to growing bonds and partnerships with people and businesses that have a passion and a desire to help further our knowledge and involvement in the local Indiana and Midwest craft beer industry.

Spring Hill Hops is our way of living and choosing a happier more enriching lifestyle within our family, friends and community. And who isn’t happy when their drinking and growing beer?

Why the Hops Business?

We aim to give local breweries access to hops that are grown within close proximity of Indiana breweries and within miles of others. This will, in return, save them money on shipping costs and allow them to have access to hops within minutes or a few hours at the most, giving them peace of mind their brewing schedule stays on time.  We also hope to create more of a demand for locally-sourced hops as we continue on into the future with new varieties and aromas they only can get with hops from Indiana and giving local brewers more options with the beers they brew with our hops.

Our passion for Indiana as well as Midwestern craft beer and its continued success drive us to keep improving the hops that are grown local and making a new successful agriculture market in our state along with our continued interest into the whole science and processes to grow top of the line hops drove us to become and be a part of the hops and beer industry.
