Hops and HOP Picking by Richard Filmer

Book Description

The hop has been intimately involved in social history for many centuries: it has caused controversy due to its role in the brewing process and was for centuries the centre of a social phenomenon, with thousands descending on hop-producing regions during harvest. It is a branch of agriculture requiring intensive labor and great skill, and this book examines its history from the earliest times to the present day, describing the traditional tools of the trade, the growers, the pickers and all those whose versatile skills have through the centuries made the hop industry a success.
