Decades of Harvest with Ed Atkins of Elk Mountain Farms

BONNERS FERRY, ID

Located just ten miles south of the Canadian border sits Elk Mountain Farms, the world's largest contiguous hop farm, at 1,700 acres. Owned and operated by Anheuser-Busch since the late 1980s, the farm is as picturesque as they come–it's hard to imagine a more ideal place to practice your trade as a hop grower. Despite how the acreage looks today, things haven't always been so golden, as General Manager Ed Atkins shared with us.
