About Us

The Hop Shop Kent

The Hop Shop is based on Castle Farm – our family run lavender farm in North Kent. In the summer months, our Lavender fields burst into colour across the Kent landscape and we harvest and extract pure Kentish Lavender Oil.

The farm’s own beef, apples, apple juice, Kentish hop garlands, dried flowers, pumpkins, Kentish lavender oils, food essences, Lavender teas and honey are all sold through the unique, award-winning farm shop (and online), along with carefully selected gifts, cards, crafts, seasonal decorations, food hampers and local, traceable produce.

Here at The Hop Shop, in accordance with the seasons we sell different produce, including Kent strawberries and cherries during the Summer and locally grown asparagus and our Hop Plants in the Winter and Spring – excellent for home-brewing enthusiasts! Cards and inspirational gifts are available throughout the year. During the Lavender Season, we organise tours of the picturesque lavender fields to teach you all about this versatile crop, plus host Aromatherapy Massages al fresco in the Lavender fields. Throughout Autumn, there are pumpkins, hops, and our pretty little PYO apple orchard and in the Winter the shop is packed with Christmas food and gifts.

Our excellent reputation and unique appeal has seen us featured on television, radio, home lifestyle as well as food magazines. The farm has been used as a location for numerous TV advertisements.

We highly value our conservation policy for the protection of our wildlife and beautiful landscape. We have a reputation for high ethical and environmental standards.
