Flavourful, Unique &
Intensely Aromatic.

 

Welcome

We grow the most flavourful, unique and intensely aromatic hops in the world by collaborating directly and meaningfully with amazing craft brewers, everywhere they are found.

Those craft brewers steer our obsessive pursuit of unrivalled flavour and aroma.  We believe size and hype aren’t measures of character or craftsmanship.  Our uncompromising standards and consistently appealing flavours mean every brewer has access to lots that truly excite them.

Our relentless focus on direct collaboration ensures anyone can access expert insights and guidance from our cutting edge breeding, growing, harvesting and processing operations.

Our Story

We pioneered a singular focus on flavour and aroma without regard for the concessions that large scale operations make.  We’re on the cutting edge of new hop innovations in breeding, growing, harvesting and processing with the performance of our hops in finished beer our central focus. 

Just like our flavour, our processing is unrivalled.  We grow, pick, dry and pelletise all our own hops directly on our farm, allowing us to optimise each step of the process, from field to foil in less than 72 hours.  Our custom-built processing facility has the coolest mill temps and lowest residual oxygen.  Every part of our processing is engineered to preserve the super-fresh, just-harvested aromas in our pellets without concern for throughput or other traditional processing compromises of high-volume facilities.

A gentle and cool journey from field to foil minimises oxidation and volitisation of all those appealing aroma compounds.  Our gentle processes create pellets that disperse easily and ensure the full spectrum of hop compounds found at harvest are preserved and end up in your beer.
