How do hop bines learn to climb in a hopyard? It starts with training day.

As we wrap up stringing and staking our hops at Rogue Farms, we want to share this newsreel video from 1969 showing how they did it in Great Britain.
They went to amazing lengths back then – you’ll get the reference when you see the video.
While the techniques are different from how we do it today at Rogue Farms, we still string and stake our 65,049 bines and 42-acres by hand. We share their pride over a job well done and their love for a pint of good beer.
Freedom is back. So is Independent and Rebel.
The signs that marked where we grow our Rogue Farms Freedom, Independent and Rebel hops were absconded with by a group of malcontents on – of all nights – Halloween. Suspicious timing…
After waiting patiently for the misfits to return their ill-gotten contraband, we realized that some people will never do the right thing. So rather than let it get us down, we had new signs made and hung in their rightful places today.
They may take our signs, but they’ll never take away our Freedom!
Check out our new signs, meet our Potbellied Pigs Voo and Doo, and enjoy one of our world class beers, spirits, ciders and sodas this winter at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon. We’re open five days a week with expanded hours coming this spring!
Join us for our final blow out party of the year, Hops, Hogs & Holidays, this Saturday at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon.
It’ll be a day of Holiday crafts, live music, a visit by Santa and we’ll wrap it up with a big ham feast. Please see below for more information, or call Rogue Farms at 503-838-9813.
