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.
Unless you’re a farmer, what we’re about to tell you may not make a lot of sense. Not at first.
We started working the fields where we’ll plant our Dare spring malting barley. Actually drilling seeds in the ground? No. That’s five to six months from now. But there’s a lot to do between now and planting time.
Here’s the deadline we can’t put off at the Rogue Farms Hopyard.
In about three weeks, someone’s going to pull up in a big truck and unload 100 starter hives, also known as nucs. It’s a huge expansion of the Rogue Hopyard apiary.
That gives us three weeks to finish constructing 200 new hive boxes and 200 new super boxes. Otherwise the new honeybees won’t have a place to live.
We had a lot of fun with the kids from the Monmouth-Independence YMCA who came out to the Rogue Farms Hopyard last week.
They’ll be regular visitors this summer. We built raised garden beds for them and they got to work right away digging holes and filling them with the plants they brought with them.
And then they saw the pigs…
