Left Fields is the organic farm on which Crannóg Ales stands. We grow hops for the brewery and sell rhizomes to other commercial producers and the general public. We also farm a wide variety of livestock, fruit and vegetables, and process some of our produce on-farm.
All our rhizomes are from our own farm and other BC organic growers. Not all growers can provide rhizomes every year, as they renew their own yards first, and production of rhizomes does vary from year to year. This means that availability will also vary. BC hops are dug after US hops, as our latitude means that the snow is often not off our fields when the US hops are being dug.
Our hops are dug in April, and shipped as early as possible in April through the end of May.
Left Fields holds regional certification only, certified by the North Okanagan Organic Association under the Canadian Organic Regime. We are BC Certified Organic only. This means that we do not hold national certification, although we do conform to the National Regime. Please let your organic certification agency know this before purchasing organic rhizomes.
A copy of our organic certificate will be included with your order on request.
We do our best to supply top-grade, disease-free rhizomes, but these rhizomes are from commercial yards which may suffer from mildew and disease. We examine all rhizomes prior to shipment to ensure that there are no signs of mildew. The plants we supply are grown from tissue cultured disease-free stock from the Clean Plant Network by an Ontario lab and nursery.
No hops have been genetically modified or propagated using GMOs.
Please see our Farm page for links with information on agriculture, organics, hops technical resources and much more. You can also order our extensively researched Hops Manual to ship before or along with your rhizomes. If you don't need a print copy, you can download a free copy of the Manual from our Farm page.
We cannot sell any trademarked varieties or varieties in development at proprietary institutions — no Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, or dwarf hops. We sell only what is listed on our site.
We would like to thank Hopslist and Hopunion for their excellent analysis of hops varieties, and we encourage you to use their sites for your own research.
We offer the following discount codes for bulk orders of rhizomes ONLY, not plants (combined total of all varieties). Enter the code when you checkout. Please do not apply discount codes to plant purchases, as we will have to bill you the full amount prior to confirming your order.
