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.

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.
