Visions of Canyon County 

Idaho is a growing producer of hops, ranking third in the country and representing 2 percent of the world’s hop harvest. Nate Jackson, owner of Jackson Hop, is one of several growers near Wilder. In 2011, he produced 400,000 pounds of hops, growing eight varieties, four of which are organic. In an effort to produce on a local level, Jackson Hop and Obendorf Hop Inc. have formed Alpha Hop Sales, which will begin to provide hops to local breweries starting next year.
