In the early 1700s, German and Dutch immigrants arrived in the Valley to work some of the richest soils of America. Their first crop of wheat was sown and produced a substantial yield. A few decades later, the Schoharie Valley’s wheat fed George Washington’s troops and earned the Valley the title of “Breadbasket of the American Revolution.”.
Through the years, this warm and durable land was adapted to flax, broom corn and other important crops. By the mid-1800s, the cultivation of hops had become the Schoharie Valley’s most famous agricultural industry. Today, those who live in this special place proudly till the same soil and enjoy a quality of life built on their agricultural heritage.
They’re dedicated to growing only top-quality produce, to preserving this historic resource, and to continuing their agricultural heritage for generations to come.
