Charles Faram have been established as merchants of hops for over 155 years and the grower owners have been growing hops longer than that. The Worcestershire based company resides between historical city of Worcester and the breath-taking Malvern Hills right in the heart of the largest UK hop growing region. While importing a vast catalogue of international hops, they have also developed their own varieties through their program set up to challenge the de rigueur of new world hop aromas. Since 2009 they have created wildly different aromas and flavours whilst also producing varieties with exceptional agronomy, providing growers with good yields and disease resistance. Every year a new class of plants are set off on their journey, involving disease assessments, aroma assessments, plot and brewing trials, to get from 10,000 individual variety seedlings to one super successful variety for commercial release. The Faram’s Family range brings to you Archer®, Emperor™, Godiva™, Harlequin®, Jester®, Most™, Mystic™, Olicana®, and Opus™.
