Bare root hop plants are available from late November until early April. Dates will vary depending on the weather and ground conditions however, we hope to start lifting from the field by November 1st.

The best time to transplant hop plants lies during this period whilst the plant is dormant.

Plants in 2 Litre pots are available from May until September.

Target, released by Wye College for general production in 1972, is a 'cousin' of Challenger but has excellent resistance to powdery mildew. It makes strong bine growth and in some cases on more exposed sites may require extra training. Target provides high yields of alpha acid with a robust aroma. With strong, typical English flavour, and good bittering qualities this hop is used in all types of beer. It has been said to produce characteristics ranging from orange, to marmalade, to peppery geranium. This hop is also recommended for the dry hopping of stronger ales to produce a more floral aroma. Target has been used as a single varietal in; Caledonian's award winning Golden Promise; Usher's Lal Toofan lager; Hardy and Hanson's prize winning Guzzling Goose Bitter which uses Target both in the copper and as a dry hop.
