2018 is the third year of our Hop Club. We already have around 70 growers, producing hops on their allotments, balconies or in their back gardens. In our first year you produced 1.3kg of delicious fresh hops, and last year you grew 15kg, a 1150% increase in yield! Hopefully you got your hands on, and enjoyed, the ‘Local Hero’ beer brewed with them.
It’s time for your 2018 Hop Club rhizome orders!
So, it’s time to order your 2018 rhizomes. We need your orders by Friday 23rd March before the end of the day, and then they’ll arrive by the following weekend. The rhizomes are of a variety called ‘Primadonna’, a dwarf variety which crops very heavily and works really well in a small space. They cost £10 each, and each comes with a length of your actual hop twine to grow them up.
You might want to add to the ones you’ve already planted to increase your yield, or perhaps you might want your workplace, community centre, business or street to join the Hop Revolution underway in Totnes! The more the merrier we say, and so if you’d like to order some more rhizomes, please pop by the Brewery on Station Road before the 23rd, order your hops, and then we’ll endeavour to get them to you by the following weekend.
Tell your friends! And thanks for all your great growing thus far…
