Peter Werle | Master Grower Extraodinaire   Born and raised just a few miles from Boondocks Farm, Peter moved back to New Richmond, Ohio in the fall of 2016 after living in Lexington Kentucky for 8 years. While living in Lexington Peter graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Sustainable Agriculture. After graduating from the Big Blue Nation, Peter spent his years in Kentucky fine tuning his skills in both horticulture and beer drinking. When Peter’s schedule allows, he enjoys time with his loved ones and doing research at local Cincinnati brewery’s. Peter truly understands the importance of quality and the challenges of creating an exceptional hop - this is, without a doubt, a crucial component in the high standards of Boondocks Hops. If you ever find yourself at the farm, don't be stranger, say hi to Peter and he will gladly give you a personal tour… BUT, don’t be surprised if you’re asked to do some work too.

Chris Werle | The Grinder   Graduating college in 2012 at the beginning of an economic recovery, Chris had a limited pool of job opportunities in the midwest area and decided to take a chance with a west coast based medical device company, representing a green territory in the New England market. Chris substantially grew this market and won multiple sales awards over his career. He attributes his success to a "grinder" attitude, waking up every morning with a purpose and drive to take action. Currently, Chris is working in the Columbus area covering Cleveland, Akron, Canton and Columbus markets - making him an ideal candidate for sales expansion into mid and northern Ohio areas. We welcome Chris with open arms and can't wait to see the relationships built with brewers all over Ohio.   When not promoting and serving as a trusted advisor to our area brewers, Chris can be found pushing the rest of us to take action, and sending us screenshots of his last 5 mile run at 6am… #thatguy
