If you plan on using NZ hops in an upcoming beer you might want to consider buying them now.

It becomes real with the quickness when you’ve been there and know the farmer doesn’t it.

It certianly does.  When I was there in 2018, they had interrupted harvest because of the heaviest rain in 100 years.  It took us 2 tries to land in Nelson because of it and we had to return to the Auckland airport to wait it out.  When we got to the farm the next day, there were lakes in the fields because of it.
