Top of the Hops!
Celtic Marches are well known for cider production, but it's not just apples that are grown on the family farm. We also grow around 100 acres of hops in addition to the 200 acres of cider apple orchards.
Our Fuggles have had a cracking year and picked up 1st and 3rd in the category at The Trumpet Agricultural Society Annual Hop Competition.
Fuggles have a delicate floral aroma and earthy flavour often associated with classic British hops.
We are very proud and delighted with the awards! Hop growing in the UK is a long standing tradition. Hops are tied by hand and it requires patience and persistence. Rob and the team do a fantastic job, year after year. It's brilliant for these to be recognised.
