CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

FIRST CROP

MARCH 2022 HARVEST
"Hi there. I've just harvested my first crop of Rakau, Orange Sunrise and Tangerine Dream from the plants I bought from you. I am very happy with my bounty, and I look forward to buying more plants from you, expanding my hop orchard, and seeing the plants bed in and keep producing. Thanks!" [Picture is of Rakau] Drew
