Dan, Nancy and Greg Koester
As a family-owned business, our "team" is made up of the three owners, along with our extended family and friends. Things would not get done without their help and commitment.
Koester Hops ( Koester Farms, LLC) is a family owned business. Dan and Greg Koester grew up in Lakeview, NY on land that was farmed by their grandfather. Dan and Nancy have been growing pumpkins, along with corn, hay and soybeans, for the last twenty years, on their 56 acre farm in Eden, and hops for decoration for the last several years. We decided to expand into the commercial hops business.We now have 2600 plants in the ground.
In August, we harvested 360 pounds of Centennial and 554 pounds of Cascade. We were very please with our first harvest.
