Organic hop farming is a positive management system, not just a case of halting the use of sprays and fertilisers. Organic status is a hard regime for those who want to be sure that chemicals are not used in hop production, but organic is currently the only acceptable and legally recognised standard of chemical-free produce and products. 

In New Zealand certification of organic hop production is provided by the New Zealand Biological Producers and Consumers Council, whose trade name is Bio-Gro New Zealand Ltd. Look out for the Bio-Gro New Zealand logo on our hop variety cards. New Zealand Hops offers 7 varieties grown under the organic regime.
