Rogue Farms, In Pictures

As much as we love sharing the story of Rogue Farms, and our grow your own, craft it yourself way of doing things – we especially appreciate it when others share it too.

Take a look at what Craft Brewing Business did with the pictures from our Winter Crop Report. They created a beautiful photo essay showing the highlights of what we’ve done over the past months to grow our beers, spirits, ciders and sodas. Click on the image below to view the full story.

How To Prepare Your Garden For Spring With Rogue Farms

Gardening USDAWith spring almost here, Rogue Farms is here to help you prepare your garden for another season of growing fruit, vegetables and flowers.

Come join us Saturday, February 28th for our next DIY Workshop, Preparing Your Garden For Spring.

When’s the best time to plant? How do you make your own compost? Our experts will answer all your questions, and maybe even answer some you hadn’t thought about.

The workshop starts at 2pm, is free and open to all ages. All you have to do is show up. For more information, please visit our event page on Facebook. For directions on to the farm, click here.

Growing your own and doing it yourself is something we believe in strongly at Rogue Farms, and these workshops are one of the ways we share our passion for GYO and DIY.

High Strung Hops

Yes, it seems silly to get excited over string.

But this was no ordinary shipment via UPS. When the string arrived at Rogue Farms, the delivery folks unloaded dozens of bales weighing hundreds of pounds apiece. In all, we now have 253 miles of string.

The Rogue Farms Winter Crop Report

From severe drought to floods and snow, and a corn crop that almost drove us crazy, it’s been an amazing year here at Rogue Farms.

Find out how we’re growing our own ingredients to craft world class beers, spirits, ciders and sodas in the Winter 2015 Rogue Farms Crop Report. Please click on the cover image to view the full report.

Rogue Farms Closed To River Access

It’s been a day of wild weather here at Rogue Farms. Last night, a big storm with heavy rain, thunder and lightning knocked out the power for ten hours overnight. That was followed by more rain today and seriously strong winds. Gusts topping 40 mph knocked over some of the big trees. Thankfully, no one was around when they came crashing down.

But if for some reason – and frankly we can’t think of a good one in this weather – if you’re paddling on the Willamette River it might be a while before you can visit us. The fallen trees have blocked river access and cleaning up the mess might take a few days.

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.

Game Day With Rogue

Beer Tasting On The Farm

Trying out the beers at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon.

Nobody knows us better than the people who live near Rogue Farms. They’re not shy with their opinions about our farm grown beers and spirits.

Naturally we were pleased when one of the local foodies singled out Rogue as must-have beer for this weekend’s Super Bowl parties.

Rogue offers an extensive collection of styles — some very unique, like its series of Voodoo Doughnut-inspired brews (Lemon Chiffon Crueller Ale or Chocolate, Peanut Butter Banana Ale anyone?) — making it likely guests will find something to their liking.

Like the article says, when it comes to beer, spirits and wine, we have an embarrassment of riches here in Oregon. It makes us appreciate even more how hard we have to work to keep growing world class beers, spirits, ciders and sodas.

Feel free to join at Rogue Farms on Super Bowl Sunday. We’ll have the game on, and you can enjoy our beers on the farm where we grow the ingredients to brew it.

Our Honeybees California Vacation

At Rogue Farms we’re used to getting up before the sun. But today began especially early, as we loaded up our 7,140,289 honeybees for the start of their California vacation.

Bees To CA 1

Our bees will spend the next couple of months pollinating an almond orchard near Tracy, California. That’s a 600-mile drive to the south, and an early start was necessary because we want to arrive by tonight. The less time on the road, the less stress on our honeybees.

The Return Of Freedom

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!

Freedom

Independent

Rebel

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!

Keeping An Eye On Our Dream

Look at what we found in the mail today, an article about the rebirth of rye whiskey featuring Brewmaster John Maier and Rogue Farms Oregon Rye Whiskey.

We admit to having a soft spot in our hearts for rye. It’s a hardy little grain that has never gotten the kind of respect that’s been afforded to barley, wheat and corn. Rye will grow under amazingly adverse conditions, but that toughness also gives rye an edgy, spicy flavor. It’s nice to see that craft spirits fans are starting to appreciate rye as much as we do.

Our Rogue Farms Dream Rye will be harvested in summer, floor malted and micro-malted at our Farmstead Malt House in Tygh Valley, then mashed, fermented, brewed and distilled at our Brewery and Distillery in Newport into our next batches of Oregon Rye Whiskey and Roguenbier Rye Ale. Open a bottle and taste for yourself the unique flavor of the Rogue of grains.
