Clear Valley Hops Rhizomes
Your best choice for successful Canadian hop growing.
Clear Valley Hops only sells rhizomes from our farm. We are not a broker or on- line shop calling around to numerous farmers trying to find supply. Our supply comes from our plants that have grown successfully under strict disease control, producing high quality hops used by commercial brewers.
We prefer rhizomes, because the roots adapt to their surroundings when they are planted, unlike nursery plants. A root trying to show off its vigor wants to survive and survive well. Nursery stock, although good, comes out of a controlled environment. We found adaptation takes longer, and requires more effort.
Rhizomes are harvested from our largest yielding plants from the previous year. A complete plantation inventory was taken just before the 2019 harvest. This way we know which crown locations will give us rhizomes with the largest yields. Our rhizomes are usually harvested and shipped in early May. Let us harvest and ship your rhizomes this spring. Advanced orders are required.
