Pick Your Own Hops – Event – Sep 2024


Whether you are a hop enthusiast, home brewer, photographer or just want some fresh hops to decorate your home; our hop picking experience is a unique and exciting activity down at Chalkpit Farm this summer.

Picking your own hops is a fantastic opportunity to choose your garland and actually harvest your own in the traditional Kentish way (with the guidance and help from our hop farmer). After a short introduction, we’ll load you onto the back of a tractor and take you on a short ride to our hop garden where you’ll get the chance to harvest the hop garland of your choice!

Want to know when Pick Your Own Hops become available again? Sign-up for ‘Product Updates‘ below and we’ll let you know the second its back in stock.
