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.

We laid down a thick layer of hay and cedar chips for them to snuggle in.

But our pigs are creatures of habit. They don’t handle change well. They eyed us suspiciously through the door.

Voo was the first who dared enter the new surroundings.

Seeing that no ill harm came to Voo, Doo swaggered in as if it was his idea all along.

To give you an idea of how our pigs’ minds work, they assumed we had laid out a giant feast for them. They noshed on the bedding for 30 minutes before they realized it wasn’t edible.

Once they caught on, Voo and Doo leapt into the pile and burrowed to make their beds.

The next time you come to Rogue Farms to enjoy one of our beers, spirits, ciders or sodas, be sure to drop in on Voo and Doo in their new digs.
