Hops may be where our legacy started, but sustainability is what drives it. For over 100 years, Roy Farms has embraced diversification, innovation, and conservation. With programs like Global G.A.P., USDA Organic, Salmon-Safe, and Safe Quality Food (SQF), our standards are always rising. We strive to be pioneers. We became the first hop farm to be Global G.A.P. certified in the United States in 2013.

Our Story Begins In The Dirt
It’s 1907. Joseph Roy reaches into the soil and plants his first hop plant—beginning a legacy that would span generations. Five generations later, Roy Farms still grows premium quality hops in the Yakima Valley. What was once 10 acres now spans the valley to include a variety of hops, apples, cherries, and blueberries. This involves multiple hop processing and storage facilities.
In 2015, we had the first SQF certified pellet facility. We want you to trust the quality, safety, and integrity of our product—every step of the way. Being a conscientious grower is important to us. Softer farming practices, rigorous safety programs, advanced irrigation technology, and renewable energy help us ensure a bright future for: our environment, our employees, and our customers.
The Roy Family
The Roy children, those too young and small to help in the fields, have fallen asleep and awoken to the sound of farm equipment for generations. The older children, nearly adults themselves, rose with their parents, following the sun, to learn to work and love the land. After emigrating from Canada in the early twentieth century, the Roys settled in Moxee, WA, where they began farming hops and raising cattle. Over the years, many crops have come and gone. The Roys have nurtured their crops and their children in Moxee for five generations—each generation building on the tradition of farming in the Yakima Valley.
As Roy Farms has evolved, so has our brand. We want to make sure you recognize us. See how our logo has changed over the years.
