A hop from London Kent became the focus of the hop industry thanks to protestant refugees from Flanders who came to the area and began growing hops.

“Having the right field structure – rich soils and a microclimate with cold winds from the North Sea – it was perfect for hops, so they stayed,” says hop breeder and researcher Dr Peter Darby. Hops need vertical space. The bines may stretch 25 feet or longer into the air. Possible ways to grow your hops are on a tall trellis near your house, or a tall pole using hop twine.

Planted hops will grow well on an foot trellis and can grow vigorously when limited to 12. Situated in the picturesque Tillingham Valley, just outside Rye, lies our fantastically traditional mixed farm.

Growing fruit and hops and farming native Romney sheep, not much has changed over the years. We've been running our PYO fruit farm since the 's and now boast one of the largest range of PYO fruit collections in the South East.

Hops are the flowers (also called seed cones or strobiles) of the hop plant Humulus lupulus. They are used primarily as a bittering, flavouring, and stability agent in beer, to which, in addition to bitterness, they impart floral, fruity, or citrus flavours and aromas.

Hops are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal hop plant is a vigorous, climbing. Kent’s mature orchards may have been grubbed up, but new apple fields, using spindle fruit trees, not bush ones, give you more fruit per acre.” A handful of Shepherd Neame hops, and two of their finest brews Brogdale’s collection includes a number of English grape varieties.

FRUIT GROWING IN KENT IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY By DAVID HARVEY PH.D. THE nineteenth century was a formative period for the Kentish fruit industry. At the beginning of the century fruit growing was a relatively unimportant sector of the agricultural economy of the county, but by it had achieved the status of a major industry.

As far back as the first century AD they were described as a salad plant and are believed to originate from Egypt. Today, the words beer and ale mean much the same, but the word ‘ale’ was originally reserved for brews produced from malt without hops.

This was the original drink of the Anglo-Saxons and English. From the point of view of growing fruit trees, this region has the best combination of low-rainfall and good levels of sunlight (more than hours per year) throughout the year, and is well-suited to growing fruit trees in small-scale orchards and gardens.

Within this zone, the south coast and Kent have an ideal climate for most tree fruits. Ways of training and stringing the hop plants using stilts were developed in Kent: Hop farming reached its peak w hectares (77, acres) of land in Kent being used to grow the crop: Foreign hops were being sold into the UK.

This caused trouble for the British growers. The farm worker went ahead in the area to be harvested and started cutting the string, up which the hop had been growing in a clockwise spiral since the spring.

The vertical strings rose up from metal fixings in the ground to the grid of wires and string, twelve feet overhead. The stem of the hop plant was also cut, just above the soil.

Just a couple quick notes - Zythos and both the Falconer's Flight 'hops' are pellet hops that are actually a blend of a number of different hop varietals together, rather than cross-breeds. The Falconers are named after Glen Hay Falconer, an Oregon brewer that died in a tragic accident back inand proceeds go to a foundation that bears.

I am passionate about hops and love the whole hands on aspect of growing and caring for them throughout the year. A Bushel of Hops was born during a particularly busy hop picking, in one of those casually day-dreamy ‘wouldn’t it be lovely if ’ moments.

The seed germinated, gained momentum and has come to fruition. A dual-use, high-alpha hop. Aroma and flavor characteristics of apricot, ripe mango, orchard fruit, orange, grapefruit, pine, and pineapple. This variety was noticed growing "wild" in the hop garden of George Stace Moore's house at Horsmonden in Kent, England in In it was introduced by Richard Fuggle who lived in the village of Brenchley (not far from Horsmonden) and hence it was called Fuggle.

The farm’s own beef, apples, apple juice, Kentish hop garlands, dried flowers, pumpkins, Lavender oils, food essences, Lavender teas and honey are all sold through our unique, award-winning farm shop ‘The Hop Shop’, and online, along with carefully selected gifts, cards, crafts, seasonal decorations, food hampers and local, traceable produce.

Simcoe has a complex aroma and flavor that is packed with tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple, guava, and passion fruit balanced by undertones of pine/woody character. Simcoe works great as a single hop but blends well with other hops, especially C hops varieties like Cascade, Citra, Centennial, and Chinook.

Classic English aroma hop which is known as Styrian Goldings in Europe and is a parent of many New World hops such as Cascade, Centennial and Willamette.

This variety was noticed growing "wild" in the hop garden of George Stace Moore's house at Horsmonden in Kent, England in Although Washington State is along the U.S.’s northern border, it actually has quite the range when it comes to USDA Hardiness Zones. Centennial owes its existence to a mix of Brewer’s Gold, Fuggle, East Kent Golding and Bavarian hops.

Hops makes a great privacy screen in summer. The vines grow up to 25 feet long annually from the crown. Hops die back to the ground each fall. Cut back after frost kills the vines. To produce flowers hops needs frost-free days.Broadwater Farm (Howard Chapman Ltd.) is located in the beautiful and historic county of Kent, in the south east of England.
