Contract Growing Hops with Us
Have you started a hop yard or want to get started, but wonder, “what do I do next?” Skip the mistakes, setbacks, and pulling your hair out and become a contract grower with Buck Creek Hops. We provide consultations, horticulturalist assistance, supplies, and insider information not only to those who are just starting up, but also to those with existing hops yards. What does it mean to be a contract grower with us? It’s simple: a contract is signed between you and Buck Creek Hops stating your farm will grow various varieties; and in turn, we agree to process, package, and purchase those hops from you for a standard set of years. So, contract growing with Buck Creek Hops not only provides you with experienced knowledge and oversight about the growing process, but removes the stress and hassle of how/when/where to harvest, process, market, and sell your hops. It’s great to be a contract grower: You grow them, we’ll buy them! Contact us today for more information about becoming a contract grower!
