Size Matters

Hops Cultivation | Growing Hops Commercially | Commercial Hops Production

At Segal Ranch, the size of our land under cultivation is ideal for growing high-quality hops. That's why we call our hops, "estate-grown." Our size allows us to maintain a watchful and attentive eye over the entire crop as it grows.

Our size also allows us to let our hops hang on the vine longer to achieve high-oil content. We pick our hops when they are ripe, when the oils are at their peak. This is the "picking window." And because of our size, we finish harvesting before our hops are over-the-hill. Sounds simple but it's not. This makes us different. The size of our ranch is a conscious one. It's been this way for over 60 years and we plan to keep it that way.
