our roots ARE IN CONNECTICUT
1646: the year that William Thrall first farmed the fertile land here in Windsor, Connecticut. For over three hundred and fifty years, our family has tended this homestead. From early days growing small crops, to the pioneering of Connecticut’s shade tobacco industry, we have been here. Our roots run deep.
The rich land in the Connecticut River valley is one of our state’s agricultural treasures. We are proud and excited to be producing new products to support local breweries. The same dedication to innovation and excellence continue to guide our farming today.
YANKEE GOLD: THRALL FAMILY MALT
In 2017, we started Connecticut’s first modern malt house with the goal of offering premium locally-grown grains and malts to our state’s craft breweries. We grow barley, wheat, rye and other small grains, and process them in our own state-of-the-art facility. This enables us to monitor and control every element of our distinctive malts.
We welcome brewers to come see our operation and explore their brewing needs.
