Old Dutch Hops is a family farm looking to build a future for right-sized agriculture in our community. We are located in Hillsboro, Ohio. Our goal is to keep our third generation family farm in production while satisfying the local need for quality food and drinks.
We raise chickens using a true pastured model. Our birds spend their first 3 weeks of life in a climate controlled brooder (built in the 60's and refurbished last year), with deep bedding kept fresh and clean, and fed our own blend of chick starter feed using corn grown on the farm. After that they move out to our fleet of 6 pasture shelters, floorless shade/rain protection structures. These shelters are moved every day, giving birds access to fresh pasture and their favorite food, fresh clover and bugs.
