Where Spirits Grow

By John Maier

Our 200 acre malting barley farm in Tygh Valley, Oregon is just a tiny piece of a bigger picture. We grew a mere .0000616 of the U.S. barley crop last year.

But we don’t want to be big, just better. That’s why we grow our own malting barley – so we can watch it, touch it, and smell it every step on the way from ground to glass.

If you’re not drinking a Rogue Farms whiskey or beer, this is where the barley might be coming from. Or it might be coming from Canada, or Europe, or Australia, or Argentina.
