We sell only 100lb test double filament coir twine. No light-weight stuff here as we’ve seen too many mature bines laying on the ground in August after a strong storm. Strings are 21ft long and come in bundles of 100 minimum and 2400 to 2600 per bale.
Once the most difficult item to come by, we have developed a good relationship with a quality Midwestern forestry and treating company to provide poles for most hop yard designs. Lengths from 20 to 24 feet are available with diameters of 4 to 7 inches at the taper. Many species are available.
Having designed hundreds of acres of hop trellis we know about hardware! Should you use 1×7 or 7×19? Galvanized or stainless? Turnbuckles or slip tensioners? We have sought out the most cost effective and reliable sources for trellis materials available within a few days of order shipped right to your door.
Don’t leave irrigation until last! Gorst Valley has built a relationship with one of the most well-respected manufacturers of pressure-compensated drip tubes in North America. Numerous emitter spacings and drip rates are available but we prefer the 18″, 1 gallon per hour design. Couplers are also available but oftentimes can be found at your local big box store for less. We can help you design a complete package.
Facing an issue of importing bale bags from Germany, Gorst Valley designed a more cost-effective woven polypropylene bale bag for 1/3 the price.
