Terms and Conditions

Price: Prices FOB Manson, Washington plus applicable taxes.
Terms 50% due upon execution of the contract. Balance due upon delivery of shipment.
Delivery: We strongly encourage our Washington state breweries to coordinate pickup at our Chelan County farm. This will get you the freshest hops and avoid delivery charges. Overnight shipping and delivery charges from Chelan Valley Hops to final destination may be added to your order and confirmed prior to the execution of your contract. Harvest: Harvest timing is based on growing conditions and variety. CVH works to communicate anticipated harvest dates throughout the year. Historically, most varieties are harvested between 8/26 and 9/20. Preferred customers will be contacted approximately 72 hours prior to harvest and invited to personally select their hop bines in the field to fill their order.
Order: This pre-harvest order is not confirmed until acknowledged by CVH approximately 1 month before harvest and brewery’s down payment is received by CVH.
