In 2018, we planted our first acre of Chinook hops. These mature plants had a very successful growing year, despite the drought like conditions in the planting season. We can’t wait to see the fruits of our labour in the 2019 growing season and look forward to expanding our hop yard to support the demand of our local craft beer industry. 

The Roost was also the proud recipient of an Eastern Ontario Development Fund grant, awarded to us by the Kawartha Lakes Community Futures Development Corporation, which supported us in the purchase of a custom hop harvester. The harvester is an integral piece of machinery in our business development and we couldn’t be more grateful to our funders for their support.
