After an incredible first year we are back to celebrate the amazing efforts of our hard working hop farmers. This year we will have over 250 growers harvesting for us to help create a unique 'Hop Collective beer' that will be sold across the county.

In addition to that harvest, we will be using our own 'home grown' hop varieties from our field. These are small steps initially to help reduce food miles and our carbon footprint but you have to start somewhere. 

We look forward to tasting what we have created.
