At the Rogue Barley Farm in Tygh Valley, a week of light rain and cool temperatures means happy barley.
Cool and moist conditions are exactly what our Risk™ winter malting barley needs this time of year. With day time highs in the upper 30’s, and night time lows in the mid 20’s, the steady temps help the barley stay dormant through the winter and into the spring. Daily light rain is keeping the soil and the Risk™ barley moist, helping the roots dig in deep for the growing season that usually starts in March.
Take a look at the photos. And think about them a year from now when you’re enjoying a Rogue Farms beer or spirit. This is the start of what you’re drinking.
