Water, Water, Everywhere

Mother Nature can be quite stubborn.


More than a week after having to close Rogue Farms because of flooding, the only road leading into the farm is still impassable. High water and fast moving currents make it unsafe for anything other than big wheeled farm equipment.

We’ve been able to return. But we’re not ready to let visitors back in and will stay closed through the weekend.

Covered in high, rushing water, the road into Rogue Farms is still to dangerous for most vehicles.

You can see that in some areas of the farm, the floods are receding. But the latest forecast for the Willamette River says water levels will remain high for at least the next few days.

Just days ago, this part of the hopyard was drowning under several feet of water.

But water remains high in other parts of the farm. We’re calling this area Lake Wigrich.

Finally today, a little bit of sunshine coming through the clouds. The Free Range Chicks and Royal Palm Turkey finally had a chance to get out on the lawn and gobble up some earthworms.

A brief appearance by the sun. More rain is expected this weekend.

Right now, we hope to be open for visitors on Wednesday. But please check here on RogueFarms.com for the latest information or call us at 503-838-9813.

Come join us at Rogue Farms this winter and see how we grow beer and spirits – come rain or shine!
