Due to two years of severe nursery losses, our board of directors has changed our focus. Rather than bareroot propagation and sales, we are shifting to education and the care and maintenance of our historic Mother Orchard.
Please consider becoming a member (below) and donating to help continue our work.

Thanks to Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply (originally started by our founder Amigo Bob Cantisano), a collection of some of our favorite species and varieties will be available through them for the 2024/25 Bareroot Season.

Product Details

These Gold Rush Era Hops are most likely the German Noble Hop Hallertaur which originate in Hallertaur Bavaria.

The prolific and vigorous vines grow from Underground Rhizomes that grow throughout Spring and Summer but die back in the late fall winter. If trellised they can reach 20ft or taller. Back in the Day People would often plant hop vines along a house, barn or porch to bring shade and cool things down when the brutal July/ August heat was at its worst. The Flowers, aka Hops, aka Cones, aka Strobiles grow on the sun bathed tips and are harvested in Fall. They are used in Beer to add flavor, bitterness, aroma and function as a preservative. The dried flowers have a wonderful sweet smell with hints of citrus and cannabis.

Story has it, that during 1920's Prohibition Era, the Law bulldozed hops fields throughout the county to destroy them, they were pushed into piles, but it is hard to kill an established rhizome like these. The locals just picked em out and planted them all along the creeks and other wet areas. Hallertaur is an ingredient in lagers and German-style pilsners.

We sell this plant in one gallon pots. If you receive the plant in the fall or winter it may look like it is dying or may just be a bamboo stick, but the rhizome is still alive under the soil and can be transplanted. The roots of the rhizome will hold together the entire 1 gallon pot of soil during transplanting just like any other plant.

Please Note: We do not ship potted plants individually. It is too expensive, but we will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees. By themselves, they are only available for pick up in N. San Juan.
