Does anyone know of a company that offers pelletizing services in the New England area? I am growing large quantities of hops and would like to be able to sell both whole hops and pellets. I know Gorst Valley Hops in Wisconsin offers this service, but the cost of shipping from southern New England is too expensive.

Thanks!

If you're going to be doing this in sufficient quantities google animal feed pelletizers.. It's a hammer mill type that's relatively cheap, they are not suitable for wood pellets , but hops have alot more oil and moisture.. There is even a place that for a couple hundred dollars sells the mill itself and you can add a DC/AC motor to it ..

Thanks, I'll take a look at those. Do you know if these types of mills are commonly used for hop pelletizing?
