The Rogue Farms planting season began this week as we seeded five acres of Wigrich Corn, a yellow dent variety we're growing for Brewmaster John Maier to mash into Rogue's first ever batch of bourbon.

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.
