Free Hops Long Island New York
« on: August 05, 2014, 06:26:21 PM »
Hi
My name is Dave and I live in Massapequa Long Island, I planted a cascade hop rhizome a few years ago in the thoughts of one day home brewing.  The home brewing never got off the ground but the hop plant has flourished.  It is absolutely loaded with cones and I am looking to give them away for free.  .  The plant has never received any pesticides or anything except organic fertilizers like cow manure and potting soil. I would hate to see them go to waste. I think they are very close to being ready to harvest. If anyone is local and wants them please let me know
Thanks,
Dave

I wish I lived closer!  But I hope your lovingly grown hops find a good home.

If you don't have any luck finding a home here you should try your local craigslist. Homebrewers watch the for sale section for used equipment so it shouldn't take long to find somebody to come pick them.

DaveB, This is a generous offer. Would you be willing to mail it if one of the respondents paid for it? If so, I would suggest one of the first guys that responded and said "wished I lived closer." Just an idea. Thanks again for your generosity.

Thanks for the advise, I think I will take Seniors advice and post it locally on craigslist.  If I don't get a response then I will mail them to first responders.  Very weird because I contacted several local home brew groups and a few local small breweries with no response.   
Thanks again
Dave

Dave,

I'm close by and would love some. Can I swing by after work one day?

Hi Dave. I'm in Port Washington. If you still have hops I would love to get some. I've never used fresh hops!
