Hop Story

The Hop Farm is based around the world’s largest oast village and produced vast amount of hops for the brewing industry.

After World War II it was very popular for Londoners to come to places like The Hop Farm to pick the hops. Every year they would travel down here to work, renew friendships and also to have fun.

Our new museum showcases film, footage and artefacts from this bygone yet much cherished era. Relive this fascinating and recent history of hop picking
