    I have shot in Hops gardens in New Zealand. There are a large number on the South Island that harvest in February which are very picturesque and are open to film crews.
    There are also wheat fields in Australia (Tasmania and Victoria).
    If you are interested in filming in this part of the world please contact me and I can send you some reference.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Kasia, hops in New Zealand are harvested late February – early March. Please get in touch if we can help.

    Hi Kasia

    Hops season is not far away. We have shot hops as early as January in the past. Earlier this year we transported a bunch of hop cones overnight to another location so are familiar with moving them.

    Here you can see some examples of local hop plants from previous shoots.

    Let me know if we can help further.

    Best of luck!

    We do have some wheat fields here in Brazil in the states of Paraná and Santa Catarina being harvested at this time. I’m not sure you still find them in December or January, they harvest before the summer rains arrive.

    In Brazil we have only few and smalls plantations of hop in the state of Santa Catarina. I don’t know them.

    Sorry about my english.

    Best regards.

    Hi Kasia
    We have a branch in Argentina and we shooted in a forest of Hops. Check the TVC in the next link
    This was a production for a German production company for the brand Wernesgruner
    I also enclose a few photos taken in January 2009
    If we can help you feel free to contact us

    The harvest in the USA was completed in Oct. in Washington, Idaho and Oregon.

    It is a holiday weekend so I am not able to get you photos of the cones’ current condition until next monday the 29th Nov.

    If you are interested (our crew and day rates are very competative) please email me asap.
