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.

Some of the downed trees by the river. We expect other trees, weakened by the storm, to fall today or tomorrow.

We’re closed this time of year on Monday and Tuesday anyway, but hopefully we’ll have the path from the river open by Wednesday. Meanwhile if you’re driving, the road is high, dry and passable. So while nothing serious happened, this is one of those reminders from Mother Nature about who’s in charge around here.

The weather starts to calm down tonight and the rest of the week calls for morning fog, but no rain. So come out to the farm and enjoy one of our beers, spirits, ciders and sodas, We enjoy the company.
