From Terroir to Table

We just began harvesting our 100 acres of Risk barley, which closely followed the Dare barley that was harvested a few weeks ago at the Rogue Farms Barley Farm in Tygh Valley, Oregon.

Did you know that the Dare and Risk malting barley grown at our farm goes right into each bottle of Chatoe Rogue Single Malt Whiskey?

Hop Harvest is Here!

Hop Harvest is about to begin! Join Rogue Farms at the Hopyard for the journey from terroir to tap!

Within the next couple weeks, the Rogue Department of Agriculture will begin trimming, separating, sorting, kilning, cooling and baling each of their seven varieties of Rogue GYO Certified aroma hops.

Take a look at the photos below to see the process from start to finish. You can also check out our Hop Harvest video here to learn more, and visit for updates on harvest dates and times.

The hops are growing!

The hops cones are forming at the Rogue Farms Hopyard! Here are some pictures of this year’s hops. You can see all the different stages of growth in the fourth image.

Taste all 5 of our Chatoe Rogue beers, made from the hops you see here and our Dare and Risk barley grown at our barley farm in Tygh Valley, Oregon:

Harvest begins!

Today’s the day!  The test cut of the Rogue Risk barley was ideal this morning-10.5% moisture- so harvest has begun! Check out some photos below, or click here to see how harvesting is done by watching our video of last year’s harvest.
