Welcome to 't Hoppecruyt

Ever since 1893, the Desmyter family has been running a hop farm in the centre of Proven, a rural village of Greater-Poperinge. Today, hop farmer Wout and his wife Benedikte are the fourth generation of hop growers. Already a fifth generation is being prepared to ensure that the finest hops will be available to brew the best Belgian beers in years to come. ’t Hoppecruyt is a modern hop farm that operates to the highest cultivation standards. Keeping an eye on the environment, the aim is on growing 9.10 ha clean green hop. The harvest is dried indirectly on the premises, and thanks to an eco-friendly use of fertiliser the hops retain very low nitrate levels. Your host, Benedikte, takes your round and will capture the attention of young and old alike with her fascinating stories about the Belgian hops and about Poperinge hop shoots in particular.

See you soon!
