Champlain Valley Hops
We’re seeking hard working individuals to join our farm crew from mid April to late June for stringing and training.
All 37 acres of our 18 ft tall trellis needs be strung every year and the season’s newly emerging bines are hand trained to grow up those strings. Ideal candidates are available full time, M-F, 8-5 from April 17 through late June. Possible opportunities for part-time employment.
Champlain Valley Hops is the largest hop farm in New England. Located about 30 minutes south of Burlington, we grow and process premium hops for the region’s growing number of craft breweries as well as home brewers. 99% of hops in the United States are grown in the Pacific Northwest. CVH is passionate about local agriculture and would like to give brewers out East greater access to local ingredients that represent the region. Our hops are used by some of Vermont’s most esteemed breweries including Foam Brewers, Zero Gravity, Lawson’s Finest Liquids, Hill Farmstead, Burlington Beer Company, and many others!
Our farm is located in the town of Starksboro on a sandy plateau in Vermont’s Champlain Valley. We are about 10 miles from Lake Champlain and 20 miles south of Burlington. The beautiful 240 acre property was a dairy farm before we purchased the land and planted our first hops in the spring of 2018. We currently grow nine varieties of hops on 37 trellised acres. As a relatively young farm, we are constantly working to improve our growing practices with quality, yields, and sustainability in mind. We encourage all crew members to participate in the company’s development and to make suggestions when they see an opportunity for improvement. You can learn more about Champlain Valley hops through our website(ChamplainValleyHops.com) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/champlain.valley.hops/).

We recognize that hops have very little (recent) history in New England, and that applicants may not have direct experience with them. We’re more focused on finding crew members who are willing to work hard, learn new skills, implement detail-oriented tasks, keep a productive pace, and work as a team. Our goal is to create a safe, fun, and inclusive work environment for our staff.
