Christopher, Gillian & Andrew Daws
Admiral, Challenger, Fuggles, Goldings, Experimental
The growing of hops was established in the 18th century in the Ewhurst and Bodiam parishes of East Sussex. The Daws family farmed in Ewhurst while the Levett family farmed in Bodiam. The Daws family were the first family to establish growing hops on a wire trellis, rather than the traditional pole and string system used by others. We now run the family farm in Bodiam growing Admiral, Challenger, Fuggles, Goldings and an experimental variety.
We are members of English Hops Limited (EHL) a Growers co-operative where I am Sales Director and proud to sell direct to Brewers and customer either as raw hops or T90 pellet a full range of varieties that our growers produce.
