Our first landlord (Mohave Niemi, founder of the famous Mos Clam Chowder) said she would not charge Rogue rent for the garage we operated out of in Newport, Oregon. She also said if we were lucky enough to survive that we "Feed the Fisherman." So far we have survived and followed her instructions. Along with creating World Class Products in World Class Packaging, Rogue believes in Community Integration. Each year Rogue hosts a number of events whos proceeds go to charities and groups in our communities. More info at www.rogue.com
