We are hiring! New member of the team at Hukins Hops.

This week we wanted to congratulate and welcome Nathan Newick to our growing business.

After a 4 month trial Nathan has exceeded expectations and we now welcome him formally as a full time member of the team at Hukins Hops. Nathan lives on the farm and is responsible for day to day cultivation and disease control in the Hop gardens. Coming from a top fruit background he is quickly adapting to the challenges of hop growing and enjoying his new role.

He says “”Really enjoying being involved in all aspects of Hop growing, being part of the team on this family owned and run farm, developing new skills and feeling part of an age old tradition.”

As you can see from the photos he has been working in a newly planted garden where are just finishing the planting of 5000 Golding Hop plants. This traditional heritage English aroma variety is extremely popular with brewers both at home and in America and makes a beautifully presented Fresh hop garland.

We are also hiring for a part time sales role at Hukins hops over the summer with flexible hours, a great office to work from and a great team. If you are interested get in touch with ross@hukins-hops.co.uk.
