Our Story

Built on nineteen acres of pristine farmland that has been in the Ormsby family for six generations, Highland Hop Yard was established in 2015 on a four-acre trellis system in the highland region of beautiful Beaver Valley. In the spring of 2016 co-founders, Will Dempster and Steven Ormsby, imported 3000 Cascade, Centennial, Chinook & Triple Pearl field grade plants from Summit Plant Laboratories in Colorado. It is Steve and Will’s hope that these plants, along with their future expansions, will contribute to some of Ontario’s finest brews for people across the province to enjoy!

Our Product

Each fall our crop is harvested on-site with the aid of our 1972 Wolf WHE 140 Hop Harvester. The hops are meticulously dried before being delivered to the nearby community of Walters Falls where they are pelletized, vacuum sealed & nitrogen flushed in an organic, food grade processing facility.
