Spring Planting In The Revolution Garden

The calendar may say winter, but it feels like spring here at Rogue Farms. It’s been four to five to degrees warmer than normal for the past few months. Everything is running ahead of schedule.

So thank you Mother Nature for giving us a head start on spring planting in the Revolution Garden.

Planting irises. We’re not interested in the flowers, but care very much about the rhizomes. Better known as Orris Root, they add floral notes and aroma to our gins.

Some of last year’s botanicals, like Chamomile, are dormant and will emerge later in the month. Add to that Angelica, Coriander, Juniper, Cucumbers, Ginger and the above mentioned Orris Root. We’re also planting Grains of Paradise, a spice native to West Africa. We don’t know how it will do in the terroir of the Willamette Valley, but we’re willing to take the risk and follow our dream of growing more of our own ingredients for Rogue Spirits Spruce Gin and Pink Spruce Gin.

A garden in late winter is like a blank canvas, waiting to be filled with flavors and aromas.

We’re also planting some traditional garden crops, vegetables and spices that we pick, cook and serve guests here at the farm.

That includes broccoli…

Kale…

Join us this summer for one of our farm fresh lunches or dinners and bring home a bottle of Rogue Spirits gin. Both are made with flavors from the same place, the Revolution Garden of Rogue Farms.

At Rogue Farms we’re dedicated to crafting all our beers, spirits, ciders and sodas using ingredients we grow ourselves. Come join the grow your own Revolution!
