Default Buying Green Hops

This might not be the right forum, but I was wondering if anyone has fresh/green hops they would be willing to part with? I would really like to try using fresh hops for a beer, but it seems that so far only Hop Union is selling green hops but only to commercial breweries.

I am in Pearland, TX, so if you are local I could even pick them up.

Thanks

It's a bit early for fresh hops. Generally it will be late august to early september when the majority of hops are harvested.

Some places will advertise wet hops when they are expecting to get them. My cascades are getting close to ready to harvest. THey took off early this year.

For myself just half a pound (maybe Mt. Hood and Cascade). Could you send me a message on pricing? I may ask a fellow homebrewer if he wants to share an order.
