VA hops processing facility
Andrew Cox has been at the forefront of spearheading the development of a new Central Virginia Hops Processing Facility that will be available to Co-op members in the near future.
The Old Dominion Hops Cooperative is an organization of hop farmers spanning the Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic regions of the United States who work together to share information about hops production, assist each other in planting, stringing and harvesting hops, and support one another in the selling and promotion of hops to local craft breweries.
The Old Dominion Hops Co-Op is a welcoming group of farmers who are excited about the growth of the craft beer industry in Virginia, Maryland & North Carolina, and want to support it by providing fresh local hops to brewers. We have several initiatives in place to provide a local, sustainable crop that will benefit farmers, brewers, and local beer enthusiasts.

We are proud to work with some amazing universities and cooperative extension services to coordinate research, testing, and promotional efforts—offering our members a one-stop source for technical advice.
