The billy goat difference
We are the farmers who work their butts off to grow and produce amazing hops. We truly care about the end product - delicious beer. We grow hops you can be proud to put in your beer. We are the farmers that you want to tell your customers about... and your customers want to be a part of.
Billy Goat Hop Farm works with nearly a dozen other small businesses. When we support each other, we create a sense of belonging, a purpose. Being part of the businesses, farms, and people around us gives a sense of unity, as though we are part of something greater than ourselves. One person's weakness is another's strength. Working together, we all become stronger and more successful.
It's the age-old saying, better ingredients, makes better products. Our hops have incredible aromas and flavor. The pellets dissolve easily in your brew yet are full of oil. There is also a uniqueness to them. The hop terroir - the natural environment: soil type, elevation, latitude, climate - of Colorado imparts it's own character into the hops. It all adds up to one simple thing, better beer.
Small, family owned, female owned farms and businesses, these are organizations that your customers want to support, and things that all define us. Market us, market that you chose to use our hops. Let them know that when they drink your beer, they're supporting so much more than one craft brewery. Let's do a "Meet your Farmer" night at the pub!
Unlike most farms, our string is not dipped in copper naphthenater, a pesticide derived from crude oil.
Our state of the art drip irrigation system is very efficient, using only the water we need.
We are able to fertigate through our irrigation system so that our positives go directly where need them in the appropriate amount.
Being intimate with all the plants every step of the way allows us to catch disease and pests early, using less chemical.
We're able to maintain good soil health and a healthy ecosystem, using a fraction of the herbacides and pesticides as the large scale farms.
Spent bines and by-products are composted and used by local gardeners.
Being centrally located, our carbon foot print for shipping is much lower than from the PNW, especially within the Southwest.
