The Old Dominion Hops Co-Op is an organization of hop farmers spanning Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina who work together to share information about hops production, assist each other in planting, stringing and harvesting hops, and support one another in selling hops to local craft breweries.
Nat Abeles is the chairman of the Co-Op and has been growing hops at Highline Hops since 2012. Since our humble beginnings, the Co-Op has grown significantly and now has over 185 official members who grow hops for the singular purpose of selling the crop to local breweries. We acknowledge that the hop growing industry in the Mid-Atlantic is still very young and we all have a lot to learn from other hop growing associations and co-ops, but we are excited about helping each other, learning from one another, and assisting hops farmers from across all the Mid-Atlantic states.
