NYHG is a partnership of farmers, brewers, distillers and local communities building a sustainable Industry once dominated by the Empire State.
We know that the craft beverage industry demands well-designed yards and significant operational capacity. We understand the key performance exposures that our farmers face, such as staffing and integrated pest management systems. We also understand that harvest, processing, packaging as well as distribution are equally intensive and often expensive enterprises of their own. For farm operations to be financially viable, our market of brewers and distillers demand that quality metrics and customer service are met on a sustained basis.
We connect farmers and producers throughout the state of New York with a unique mix of coordinated services, industry advocacy, marketing programs, career training, and effective public-private partnerships.
Our partnerships help the NY craft beverage industry grow by bringing new acres online, reducing expenses, and increasing quality controls to the level of standards that our producers demand. We operate on a regional basis through our networked initiatives such as Hudson Valley Hops, the New Farm Network and NY Ag & Bev.
We provide integrated services from soil to plant, harvest to product distribution. From farming and managing existing yards to consulting, designing and building new yards, we're expanding the acres necessary to a sustainable craft beverage industry in NYS.
We bring quality controls and standards that brewers and distillers want for their local sourcing needs. We also provide farm consulting, management, processing and packaging to brewers and distillers who are looking to secure their local sourcing long term.
We know that a sustainable craft beverage industry requires an integration of advocacy and diversified revenues. We work with public and private partners to facilitate effective marketing and promotional campaigns that advance the agribusiness goals that we all share.
