Michigan's 1st Hop Farm with a Wedding Venue

About the Farm

We're a start up hop farm located in Cottrellville Township and a partnership between husband and wife team Scott and Shannon Schwabe.

The craft brewing industry in Michigan has quickly become recognized nationwide as a leader in the industry and there’s an increasing demand for local hops.  We want to help meet that demand by offering fresh grown hops to our local Michigan breweries.  

The Pursuit of Hoppiness

Meet the team

I'm the business person, farm collaborator, venue manager, wedding
planner, photographer, and wife.

I believe in karma, soul mates and to never rely on the weather
forecast. My career in the wedding industry began as a professional
photographer and for the past 9 years I’ve been working behind the
scenes, documenting the most special day in a couple’s life together.

I know weddings inside and out and appreciate how a perfectly
planned wedding runs like a well oiled machine.
I’m the farmer, business collaborator, field hand, general maintenance
guy and whatever else my wife needs from me.

I love a good day’s work and appreciate a nice cold beer afterwards.
I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors and nature. And while my
day job has me fighting fires, there’s no place I’d rather be than
home on the farm.
