We have sold out of hops from the fall 2013 harvest! If you are interested in purchasing dried, whole leaf Cascade, Willamette, Mount Hood, Centennial, or Nugget hops for the next 2014 fall harvest, please fill out the contact us form below and indicate quantities and varieties. Our hops are vacuum-sealed after drying, and then stored in a freezer until they are shipped to you to preserve their freshness.
Besides the hops soap offered in our online store, many other varieties of soap are available for purchase at Sadie's The Lady
store on Etsy. You can also find it in local shops in Presque Isle, ME - visit Merchant's on the Corner (at the corner of Main and Academy St.), or Goin' Postal (on North St.).
Farm visits/tours and hops growing resources:
We are excited to see the high level of interest in hops growing from people in Maine and all over the Northeast! We hope the enthusiasm continues as we strive to develop a thriving hops industry in Maine.
We are currently getting 3-4 requests a week for on-site visits. We regret that we are not able to accommodate individual requests – we simply don’t have enough time. We have regular day jobs, two small children, and all our other time is spent working as much as we can in the hopyard! We do have a lot of information and experience to share, though, and are happy to answer as many questions as we can via email – please use the contact form below.
We welcome hops picking volunteers for a harvest party each fall, and are happy to provide tours at the time of harvest. This is also a great way for those interested in growing hops to see what they are getting into!
Also, there are a few great resources out there for those interested in growing hops that we have found to be invaluable. The Hops team at the UVM extension has a wonderful page with ever updating information on all aspects of hops production. The Northeast Hops Alliance (NeHA) is associated with Cornell’s cooperative extension, and has a wealth of information available. Finally, the original “bible” of small-scale organic hops production (the only information available when we started long ago!) is available on Rebecca Kneen’s website.
