The Davis Farm was originally settled by Uriah Davis in the
1700's. Uriah came from England aboard the Convict Ship
Papatsco, surprisingly as the captain, in 1732.
The farm has 80 acres of valley nestled between two Blue
Ridge Mountains. The gentle slopes of the valley and three
spring fed streams make this a unique and ideal area for
growing the best hops.
The main field was a Cherokee Indian campground and many
arrow heads and stone axes were found over the years where
the two streams meet, thus, the name Sticky Indian Hops.
The original native hop, that sparked the hop farm idea, was
used to make tonics and the whole cones were used as pillow
stuffing to promote better sleep. We are currently moving the
native hop rhizomes to better locations and will let everyone
know if the hops turn out to be good for beer.
