Behind The Scenes At Rogue Farms

At the end of every one of these stories we invite you to come visit us at Rogue Farms.

For us, there’s nothing better than showing folks how beer and spirits begin in the dirt. Spend a day with us and we’ll open your eyes to how that Rogue you’re drinking is actually a farm product, made with crops that we planted, grew and harvested ourselves.

Here’s what you might see on any given day at Rogue Farms.

Piggies In A Blanket

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.

These Little Piggies Went Into A Stupor

VOO and DooIn many weddings, there’s a tradition of the bride tossing the bouquet.

For the weddings we host at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon we added a new tradition – tossing the leftover food (except meats) to our Potbellied Pigs, Voo and Doo.

This makes the pigs very happy. They have come to love weddings on the Farm almost as much as the bride and groom. But being pigs, they sometimes enjoy themselves a bit too much.

Kids Like Pigs

YMCA Kids PlantingWe 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…

Pig On The Mend

Apples...

It’s been over a week since we put the pigs on arthritis medicine and the difference is amazing.

To be honest, it’s also quite a relief to see that Voo and Doo have plenty of life left in them

This Little Piggy Had X-rays

The sad-looking picture you’re about to see is our Potbellied sow Voo on the examination table at the Lois Bates Acheson Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Oregon State. Voo’s had some trouble with her back legs, so we took her in to find out what was going on. The official diagnosis is Bilateral Stifle Osteoarthritis. AKA, knee arthritis.
