Our Goal for this Blog

Over the years we have received and continue to receive numerous phone calls and emails asking many different farm related questions. Our thought is that we would try out a blog to keep people up to date on what we are doing here on Puterbaugh Farms and at Hops Direct.

We will just jump right into where we are at in the growing season with a very brief look at what it took to get the hops to the stage they are in now. If interest is actually shown and people are looking for more information we will continue through the winter and pick up the beginning next spring, which will allow everyone to get a feel for what a full crop year looks like from a hop grower's perspective and all of the many challenges involved. We hope you enjoy.

Sweet Shirt!

The internet has been down in Mabton, Washington so I have been forced to dictate this post over the phone to my fiancee (she's a great sport).

We are really excited about the new hop shirts we got in and have been wearing them non-stop! In our opinion it is some of the greatest hop artwork we have seen to date.

I was able to take some really great photos today and am hoping to post them tomorrow (dead powdery mildew!, hop cones forming, and arching, which I will explain later).

Pictures in hop fields are awesome!


I love this sky.

Those are great shirts! Are they for sale?

Currently I just have the one on my back. I recently sent in some great revisions to the person who created the artwork so that it will include the names of all the varieties we raise on the farm. I'll look into the possibility of getting them printed.

Black shirt with neon green print would be cool. I'd buy several, my wife would probably like them too.

If you are producing them, if they are exclusive to Puterbaugh, they should have your logo on them somewhere also.
