Gorst Valley is dedicated to hop quality in all forms, and that includes live hop plants. We have designed and built a custom greenhouse production system that is the only biosecure facility in North America dedicated to hop production.
Please check in for 2018 plants starting in December of 2017!
Gorst Valley never intended to supply plants to the hop production industry; it was only after tens of thousands of dollars were lost due to dishonest rhizome dealers that we realized something needed to be done. We looked to other greenhouse producers, only to find that their disease free “certification” was meaningless. Dozens of growers found out the hard way, after unintentionally planting thousands of diseased plants, that there is no “certification” program for hop screening.
Gorst Valley works hard to raise the standards of the hop industry, and it is for that reason we’ve built the only biosecure greenhouse dedicated to hop plant production in North America…. We call it the plant lab. Is it big? Nope, but it is big enough to propagate tens of thousands of plants by reservation only, allowing our staff the time to care for each plant individually. We work closely with the University of Wisconsin and the USDA to ensure robust disease screening and scientific protocols for confidence.

The Fine Print
Available varieties and volumes may change at any time due to limited stock. Deposits are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Gorst Valley Hops will provide healthy plant stock as it leaves our facilities; lack of expected plant growth due to delays in planting or incorrect planting, maintenance, harvesting and drying procedures are at the discretion and risk of the grower. It is assumed that the buyer is knowledgeable in these areas as consultation on any of the above are not included in the price of the plant sale.
