Established in 1932, B.T. Loftus Ranches Inc. is one of the Yakima Valley’s longest running hop farms. In 1920, the Loftus family moved to Moxee in pursuit of work on the railroad and began farming a variety of crops and livestock. Twelve years later, B.T. and Leota Loftus established the family’s first five-acre hop farm. Today, Loftus Ranches is owned and operated by third and fourth generation hop farmers, Mike and Patrick Smith. They are involved with Yakima Chief Ranches and the Hop Breeding Company, growing different varieties such as Simcoe®, Citra®, Palisade®, Ahtanum®, Mosaic®, HBC 682 and Sabro®. Loftus Ranches is one of the largest growers for the craft beer industry, valuing quality, sustainability and innovation. They are dedicated to their craft and look forward to growing varieties that meet the needs of brewers for many years to come.
