Every July we make plans for the harvest season at Rogue Farms.
The Risk™ malting barley harvest in Tygh Valley kicks things off mid-month, followed by our seven varieties of hops at our farm in Independence in August. But you know what they say about making plans.
This year, Mother Nature and the 7,140,289 Rogue Farms honeybees decided it was time to shake things up.
This is the greatest time of year to be a Rogue Farms honeybee.
We’re in the middle of the summer nectar flow, when gazillions of wildflowers, blackberry flowers and clover fill the fields surrounding our farm.
It’s the honeybee’s version of an all you can eat for free buffet. But for our bees, that’s not good enough.
No one knows terroir like the Rogue Farms Honeybees.
This year, our 7,156,283 honeybees made 89,453,537,512 stops to collect nectar from flowering hazelnuts, maples, roses, apples, walnuts, cherries, pumpkins, raspberries, marionberries, blackberries and clover. The honey they produced is a sampling of all the flavors of the Wigrich Appellation – a unique taste of place.
And soon, you’ll be able to taste the terroir of Rogue Farms for yourself when the honey we harvested is used to brew 19 Original Colonies Mead, Honey Kolsch and Braggot.
So how do we harvest our honey? Here’s how.
