Discover The Hop Farm

The Hop Farm is Kent's iconic and historic landmark. Featuring the world's largest collection of Victorian oast houses, it was a major supplier of hops to London breweries in the 19th and 20th centuries. Families across the South East and beyond used to spend the summer holidays working in the rolling countryside around the Hop Farm, harvesting hops and preparing them to be transported. 

The hop packets were delivered to the local train station using the strength of the famous Shire horses. Visit The Hop Farm and you can learn more about its history and even meet the Shire horses in the stables.

Please note: Now that we have entered our off-peak season the Animal Farm is shut for essential maintenance and upgrade works. Updates on the re-opening date will be added to our website and social media soon.
