How to Find the Hopyard By Air, Land and Sea:

Directional Sign_2By Air: The nearest general aviation airport is the Independence State Airport, a mile northwest of town. The airport has a 3,000 long, 60′ foot wide asphalt runway, handling about 87 trips per day and housing nearly 200 aircraft. Facilities include self-serve 100LL aviation fuel.

FAA Identifier: 7S5

  3. Is there a marker or sign on the Willamette to let us know where we can land our kayaks to visit the farm? We are planning a trip from Albany or Buena Vista to Independence and would like to stop by.

    • Look for the Chatoe Rogue sign on the riverbank. You’re welcome to park your canoes and kayaks on the beach at the sign.

    Are pets allowed? I see that you have critters and want to be sure it’s alright to bring our dog along.

    July 5, 2013
    • Dear Andrea,

      Rogue Farms is dog friendly. All we ask is that dog owners keep their pets under control in case they don’t get along with other dogs, and so the dogs don’t chase our poultry.

      Hope to see you soon!

  8. If we want to cycle out to the independence farm, is there somewhere near by we can camp?

    September 4, 2013
    • Hi Joseph,

      There’s no camping at the farm and not much to choose from nearby. If you want to paddle your way here, there are two primitive campgrounds just south of here on the Willamette River. Take a look at the Willamette River Water Trail map for more information. We’ve never seen these campsites and have no idea what conditions are like at these two spots.

    I love your 7 hop IPA. Can you fill growlers to go and is it available at the Hopyard? Thanks!

    October 25, 2013
    • Hi Scott,

      We’re suppose to get more kegs of 7 Hop IPA at the Chatoe today. But please call ahead to make sure we got them. The phone is 503-838-9813.Growler fills, we can do!

    Planning to stop by Sunday afternoon. Are you doing tours of the facilities these days? Any other events going on at the Chateau this weekend? Thanks!

    November 5, 2013
    • Hi KT,

      We’re open 11am to 8pm this Sunday with a tour of the Farm scheduled for 3pm. Looking forward to seeing you!

    Are you open for farm tours this weekend, Nov. 22-23? I am interested in seeing hop bines and maybe collecting some of the waste bines for papermaking. I read in an old book that hop vines can be used for hand papermaking.

    November 21, 2013
    • Hi Jane,

      We’re open both days this weekend from 11am to 8pm, with tours at 3pm. We love the idea of making paper from bines, but we harvested this year’s crop of hops two months ago and have mulched all the leftover bines.

  12. Hi Steve,

    Paddlers are welcome to use our beach and come in for a beer during a trip, but not as launch or take out site.

    As for your other questions, check out the Willamette Water Trail website. Lots of good maps and other info.

    Is there any way to purchase some of your honey? I would LOVE to try it!

    May 7, 2014
    • Hi James,

      Our 7,140,298 Rogue Farms honeybees appreciate your interest in their honey. But for now, we’re setting it aside for John Maier to brew more Honey Kolsch, 19 Original Colonies Mead and Marionberry Braggot.

      Thank you,
      Rogue Farms

    Do you guys serve food at the farm?

    June 30, 2014

      Yes we serve food, along with our farm grown beer and spirits.

      We have a menu on our Facebook page, but the offerings may change according to the season.

    If we canoe to Rogue Farms, are there taxis to take one of us back to our car at Buena Vista Ferry? I don’t think I can paddle four miles back up against the river current! :)

    August 8, 2014
    • Hi Olivia,

      Although paddlers are welcome to stop on our beach while visiting the farm, we don’t allow people to use it as put in or take out location.

    Just to educate you a little, the Independence airport has ONE runway oriented north to south. You can land at either end (thus your confusion of saying it has 2 runways). Pilots already know this anyway. Just thought you could update your website to be accurate.

    From the pilot

    • Thanks for the information, we updated the website!
