The Madison County Hop Fest surpasses all of the other fests out there because it is the only one of its kind that can proudly declare that it celebrates over 200 years of hop heritage that began right here in Madison County! It was right here in Madison County that James Coolidge from New England planted the 1st commercial hop yard on acres of farmland in Bouckville. It was also right here in Madison County where James Coolidge was the first to transport hops to the New York City market in 1816. Thus, establishing a commercial agricultural connection between the hop fields of CNY and the agricultural commodity marketplace.
