Here’s what two week old whiskey really looks like.
Just as we prepare our hops and honeybees for winter, this week it was time for our celebrity Potbellied Pigs, Voo and Doo. Voo and Doo are hardy creatures but even they need a warm place to sleep. One of our chores this week at Rogue Farms was to winterize their home.
Rogue Farms has been nominated for Best Brewery Tour by the readers of USA Today and 10Best. Finally, an election that really matters.

DIY is at the heart of everything we do at Rogue Farms. We grow and process our own ingredients to create a proprietary palate of flavors for Rogue beers, spirits, ciders and sodas. We love sharing our DIY philosophy with others. Please join us at one or all of our winter DIY workshops so that you too can learn how to Do It Yourself.
Just when we thought things weren’t going to be so bad at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley and Independence, comes word from the National Weather Service that we’re going to get a heck of a lot of snow.
At Tygh Valley the predictions are all over the place. We could see anywhere from 5-14 inches of snow depending on how this plays out. Temperatures will stay below freezing for the next several days.
We’re also keeping a close eye to what’s happening north of us in Columbia River Gorge. The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for the western Gorge predicting up to 5 inches of snow and sleet. Wind gusts will be high as 65-70 miles per hour.
Our secret defense is Tygh Ridge. At 2800 feet, Tygh Ridge protects us from those howling winter storms that roar down the Gorge.
One of the wildest growing seasons at Rogue Farms is coming to a close, and we’re already getting started on planting next year’s proprietary palate of flavors.

Autumn is one of the busiest times of year for the beekeeper at Rogue Farms.
There’s no more wild sources of nectar and pollen for our honeybees to forage and soon it will be too cold for them to leave the hive. So in the next few weeks our beekeeper has 7,140,289 mouths to feed, medicate and shelter before winter arrives.
The bees took care of us this spring and summer by pollinating our crops and making the honey we used in our kolsch, mead, braggot and sodas. Now it’s our turn to take care of them.
