farmhouse is very reputable, many hbter's buy through john, myself included. he wouldn't pull any shady business. if they say they are 2012, they are 2012.
i also echo that each farm is a bit different, the AAs wouldn't be the same for an entire year unless it was a single crop single farm hop (like maybe el dorado was a year or two back)
