The teachers visiting Oregon for the last two weeks have been spending their days like this....
So we took a Wednesday evening field trip to Rogue hops farm in Independence, OR.
I have posted about HOPS before. This time we got to tour through all the processing facilities... starting with the fields. They are just starting to set flowers. (Those are hops in the background growing up coconut fiber ropes suspended from cables and poles.)
Some of the equipment inside these buildings looks downright mid-evil.
We ended up having a taste and walking down to the Luckiamute River.
The tour was great but it will be even better when I go back in late August to watch the harvest in action.
