Rogue Gets Goosed

It’s become a rite of winter at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley, Oregon. A battle with invaders from the north.

Hundreds of Canada Geese descend upon the farm this time of year to raid our Risk™ malting barley. From the air, the vast fields of green barley shoots are a target that’s too attractive to pass up.
