Madison County Hop Fest

Over 200 years ago, Madison County resident James Coolidge introduced commercial hop growing to New York State by bringing a rootstock from New England. By 1828, eleven NYS counties were raising hops. Madison, Oneida, and Otsego Counties raised nearly 80% of the nation's hops by 1880.
