Rogue Barley Farm: Seeding The Revolution

Some rain kept Rogue Ales Farmer Doc McCallister and the crew out of the fields for a few days this past week, but soon they were back to work planting the rest of the Risk™ 2-row winter malting barley.

The process is often called drilling, because the rotating discs that drop the seeds into the furrows are said to “drill” them into the ground. Drilling next year’s Risk™ crop began a few weeks ago. That first section of barley is now 2-3 inches tall and thriving in the cool weather and rain.

We get some amazing scenes this time of year as the weather transitions from summer into winter. The alternating days of rain and sun create some great images like this stunning photo of rainbow over the Rogue Ales Barley Farm.
