There's probably some "cascadian" folk hippy renaissance festival going on out there or something, I wouldn't worry about it though. I'm sure they'll ship your hops out once they tire of singing kumbaya around the campfire and all the blotter wears off.

Did you even look at the two sites prices side by side? I just checked 5 different hops and hopsdirect was cheaper by a couple bucks on every one of them...PLUS, some of them were 2011 on hopsdirect vs. wholesalehops.

Just thought you may be interested since they are located in Northern Illinois.

The only place I've found that has better prices when comparing the same crop year is Crosby, and then only on a few varieties.

I'm figuring if you have to talk to them to place that order it's to get around the one pound limit, and they announced that weeks ago when the harvest started. Probably should have planned ahead better and not waited for them to get super busy.

I'll cut hopsdirect slack on any service issues because they're a farm first and foremost. The fact that they put up with packaging and shipping one pound at a time is amazing. And how many farms sell direct? Two. So good for them and I'll deal with some delays.

Don't forget that their typical "1 Pound" is actually 18-19 oz. They keep me coming back easily.

I do not use wholesale hops and I get much better prices by buying in bulk. Hops Direct said they wouldn't do pre-orders. I pay 5.25 a pound for willamette and 6 flat for cascades. Hops Direct does send you out a little more than a pound, but the farm I buy from contacts me back when I have a question. The owner usually e-mails me from his smart phone. They are awesome.
