We're off! It’s the first day of our 2022 hop harvest. The Hogs Back Hoppers have gathered in numbers to help bring in this year’s harvest.
The Hangar has been transformed into the Hop Harvest HQ and will be a hive of activity.
While the dew burns off the hops, Matthew briefs the team……
The first tractor, with Matthew at the wheel, left at 7.45am, pulling the new automated Bine Puller Trailer, with the team on board.
This latest bit of kit should help reduce some of the manual labour in pulling down the whole hop bines from the wires, so Matthew is keen to see how it will work….
The first hops have been safely delivered back to the Hangar!
