Finished Product


Freshly Picked Hops



Vigilant daily checking allowed the hops to be picked at the height of ripeness


Dried Hops

 

After picking, the hops were laid in drying racks and dried with a soft blowing heat to standard dryness.
The bright yellow luplin is gold to growers and brewers alike!


Pelletizer

Sounds of whirring and grinding fill the air as the dried hops are transformed into
vibrant and fragrant pellets.
 
Our hops were sent off to be analysised and the results were great.  Eagle Valley Hops Estate is pleased to have produced a quality product.
