At Rogue Farms, we’re always up for trying something new and revolutionary. If someone around here has a good idea, we’ll go for it, even if we don’t know exactly how it will turn out.
A good example of the Rogue way of doing things is our Wigrich Corn. We planted four acres this summer with plans to floor malt and micro malt it at our Farmstead Malt House in Tygh Valley.
Well you know what they say about making plans…

There’s an old saying that corn should be, “as high as an elephant’s eye” when you harvest it. With elephants in short supply in the Wigrich Appellation, we at Rogue Farms use more traditional ways of determining when our crop of Wigrich Corn is ready to be picked, shucked and shelled.
The answer? Any day now.

In all the years we've been farming, we've never seen a season quite like this one.
A hot July kicked our crops into overdrive, but especially our grains, the wheat and corn we grow at Rogue Farms in Independence and the malting barley we grow in Tygh Valley.
Drive down Wigrich Road to Rogue Farms this time of year and you’ll always find something new going on.
We're adding a new crop to the proprietary palate of flavors we grow at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon.
This spring we planted five acres of wheat in a field next our Dream pumpkin patch.
A step forward in the Grow Your Own Revolution.
