ABOUT US

Mankato Farms is a small, family-owned hop farm located in New Carlisle, OH. Mankato was founded and is managed by homebrewers Tom Hoenie, Joe Pellegrino and their families with the intent of providing the best quality hops to Midwestern brewers. As homebrewers ourselves, we know that not all hops are created equal, and that hops grown and processed with patience and care yield superior beers. The love you put in is the love you get back.  With the vast majority of domestically-sourced hops coming from the Pacific Northwest, we allow for a distinct advantage to both commercial and recreational Midwestern brewers by providing a product that is local, fresh, and of outstanding quality.
