The Flood That Wasn’t

Once again, Mother Nature has proven to be fickle.

The big winter storm that was threatening to drown Rogue Farms under seven feet of water? It turned out to be a whole lot of nothing. The hops, Dream Rye, Potbellied Pigs and honeybees were never in any danger.

Here’s a photo we took of Wigrich Road when we drove into the farm this morning. Covered in water, but passable.


With more rain on the way, the National Weather Service says minor flooding is likely to continue until the weekend. If you plan on visiting the farm this week, please call us at 503-838-9813 to make sure we’re open.

Winter weather can be tricky, but when you grow beer and spirits in collaboration with Mother Nature, you learn to roll with it.
