Hops patches are used to grow different Hops with the Farming skill; useful in brewing different types of ales with the Cooking skill. 4 hop seeds (only 3 Jute seeds) are required. Players can pay a nearby farmer to eliminate disease risk; or use varying types of compost and the option to water the patch to reduce (but not eliminate) chance of disease.
Harvesting can yield between 3 and 35 (65 with Ultracompost) hops. After a hops patch has been harvested, the patch has to be re-planted. Hops on average give less experience in planting and harvesting than allotments; however, they are not nearly as susceptible to disease as allotments. Hops patch do not have a compost bin nearby but do have a Tool leprechaun.
