Forward Contracting

Charles Faram & Co strongly recommends forward contracting your hops so we offer a forward contract service that allows you to order secured stock throughout the year.


  • Minimum annual contract quantity of 40kg
  • Contracts are available for multiple crop years
  • If your contract is for more than 300kg we will store your hops and you may purchase them on a pay as you go basis*
