For those of you who missed the Northeast Hop Alliance bulk rhizome purchase, there are still a few options available. Our website maintains a list of sources from where you can purchase hop rhizomes. Here is a run down of some of the local places:
Aroostook Hops, Westfield, ME has Nugget rhizomes for sale. Check out their website for pricing and availability.
Northeast Hop Alliance and Cornell Cooperative Extension – Live hop plants. Cascade, Fuggle, Liberty, Newport, Perle, and Willamette are being sold in 4-inch pots, and can be purchased for $5/plant, with a minimum of 30 plants/single variety. These plants are propagated from cuttings of virus-free stock purchased from the Washington State Clean Plant program. Live plant cuttings such as these are free of latent hop viruses and mildews. This is the best way to guarantee that you will start your hopyard with disease-free stock.
Sunnybrook Farm, Middlesex, VT – VOF certified organic hop rhizomes. Cascade, Centennial, Willamette, Kent Golding, Mt. Hood, and Magnum available for $4\each (plus shipping). Email Sunnybrook Farm, or call 802-310-6031.
Do you have rhizomes that you have harvested from your hopyard that you are interested in selling? Please feel free to post on the Vermont Hops Google Group (the group is not limited to Vermonters) or email me, and I’ll post it here.
