A Farm Of Many Colors

This is the most beautiful time of year at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley, Oregon where we grow the malting barley for Rogue Spirits.

Auburn leaves on the hillsides. Deer playing hide and seek in the fields. Ducks and swans taking a break during their long migration south.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.

Sunrise on Mt. Hood. This ancient giant casts a rain shadow over the barley that protects us from winter storms and gives us 300 days of sunshine.

Deer and Elk come down this time of year from higher elevations to play and forage in the fields.

More than two dozen ponds and creeks attract migrating swans and ducks as well as Bald Eagles and Osprey.

Mt. Hood, Tygh Ridge, Badger Creek and the geological history of Tygh Valley all contribute to a terroir that’s perfect for raising malting barley. It means we can grow quality ingredients of known origin for Rogue Farms spirits.

To be able to grow your own, in such a beautiful place, is a blessing.

  1. Just wanted all our friends in Oregon to know how much Rogue has influenced the east coast in Fayetteville, NC. Here in Bob and Sheree’s Beer & Wine Shoppe, LLC with thirty-five seasons under our belt.
    No matter how often we reach out to you for product in beer and ales with every color under the sun your team and your tremendous knowledge always leave me, (Sheree, owner) speechless. To hold your bottle and know the excitement of “I’m about to taste this, is surreal.” The experience is off the chart! Thank you Rogue Nation for Never Letting Us Down! We Continue to Raise Our Glass To You and Your Team Rogue. Graciè, Sheree Salutes You.
