“Splendor in the hops”

Rogue Farms Micro Hopyard
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The Rogue Hopyard is right on the Willamette River, just south of the once hop capitol of the world Independence, Oregon. Rogue has seven varieties and 42 acres of aroma hops growing on the Wigrich Appellation. The hops are harvested and baled in harvesting equipment and facilities on the farm. The tasting room at our Hopyard in Independence, Oregon is 468 square feet of proof that we're about World Class Beer, World Class Packaging, Community Integration, and Unique Thunder. This is the birth place of our Rogue Farm brew series and our Farmstead Nano Brewery ales. Sample these ales on the deck with a view of our hops and the surrounding terroir at sunset.

If sampling a variety of great Rogue beers in an outdoor setting surrounded by towering hop fields, you'll love this place. The farm has a large outdoor area with tables that overlook the hop fields. It's a great place to hang out, play horseshoes and drink some great beer. The drive out there is along quiet, scenic country roads with rolling hills and farms -- ideal for a Sunday drive. Definitely worth a trip.

I really love going to the Hop Farm after a bike ride or for a beer and walking around the farm. Because of that we decided to have a party at the Hop N Bed house. We had a great time and our guests enjoyed the band, the beer, and the farm. There were a few details that would throw you off if you are a type A person who likes details to be taken care of, that seems to be the norm at Rogue.

We showed a little after three to check in, waited a while in the line at the tasting room, then the girl at the counter didn't know we had rented the house (it had been planned for a few months). She told us the house wasn't ready yet and was still being cleaned and wouldn't let us unload all the food we had brought into the fridge. In between pouring beer for other people waiting in line, she finally got around to calling Stephanie, the woman who appears to be in charge of the rental, (she did give us a beer while we waited). Stephanie showed up about 20 minutes later and had us fill out a rental agreement, again, the third one I filled out, she didn't have the previous two that I had filled out for her when I was making payment arrangements. It took her about 10 minutes to process the payment. We got the keys and the house seemed to be in OK shape except the upstairs bathroom hadn't been cleaned and it was questionable whether or not we had clean linens on the beds, and the dishwasher was running so we were short of utensils. We had also arranged for a band to be playing there during the party and the agreed upon time was that the band would start at 7, which is what we told our guests. When we got there, the band was setting up and Stephanie informed us that they would be playing from 4-7, ending when we told people to be there. There was no explanation for why the times where changed and why no one told us.
Other than those few things, which was a little stressful at first, we had a good time. It worked out great and the band ended up coming over after to the house to hang out. If you are a detail orientated person who wants things to work out, the the "whatever happens happens" attitude of the Rogue might be irritating to you.

We canoed the Willamette River and decided to pull our canoes out at Rogue Farms. The outdoor tables and play yard are a lot of fun. Great games, interesting things to see in the summer (hops growing, chickens, etc.), and of course, amazing beer. Grab some grub, a pint of lager, and play giant Scrabble, or giant Jenga in the yard. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Great place for kids, too!

First things first, this was a winter visit to the farms and I was very impressed; I can only imagine what it is like in summer or during harvest time.
Rogue Farms embodies some of the best things about Rogue, the creative, do it yourself attitude mixed with people who know how to enjoy themselves. Set among the hop fields (and pumpkin patches), which again, being winter, didn't have anything going on, but I was still impressed. Tours are offered at 3pm on weekends (which we just missed). There were farm buildings, a farmhouse that people can stay at, wandering chickens, and of course, a tasting room. You can take your Rogue beer out to the yard for some bocce ball, a giant Scrabble board, and other implements of fun. Expect to spend at least an afternoon here.

Rogue Farms is a great place to eat and play outside. I would caution against staying at the farmhouse though. When some of the people staying there came early (15 min) they were told by Natasha they were too early. So as we all arrived, we had to stand waiting in the parking lot till exactly 3:00. Then she opened the door and said "I will take only the person paying the bill, the rest of you can wait out here". Then when that person was filling out paperwork, she was asked if she wanted to buy wine. Our person said she had some from a local winery. Natasha said "well, I hope you don't show the same disregard for the rest of our rules". That was her tone the entire stay. Also, if you are at the house, there are no boundaries for other visitors. People were constantly walking on the deck and kids played in the play structure. We definitely got the feeling they did not want that part of the operation.
