Farmers Brewing Company was founded by Bill and Kristin Weller, both fifth-generation farmers. Located in sprawling Princeton, CA, with a population of 407, the family farm has been in operation since the 1800s, currently producing rice, almonds, walnuts, and wheat. GPS-guided tractors have since replaced the mule-driven machinery used to till the same soil a century ago, but much remains the same.
Bill started helping on the farm when he was about 8 years old. Chores included mowing roads, cleaning shops, repairing combines, and driving tractors after school. He later earned a BS in Agricultural Engineering Technology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and realized living in a big city or working a desk job was not for him. In 2001, he met his wife, Kristin, who also had a farming background spanning five generations, and the rest is history.
