Overview of Eastern Oregon Grain growing areas. 

Overview of Eastern Oregon Grain growing areas. 

The map above shows the area in where we are contracting our grain to be grown for the products we distill. As you can see the area is diverse. To the west lies the Columbia River and irrigated crop circles. To the east lies dry land up to the base of the blue mountains. It is this diversity that allows for a multitude of grains to be grown. Umatilla county produces the most wheat in Oregon state. We feel our distillery is at ground zero when it comes to the grain producing region which is a good thing. Not to mention being near some of the best watermelon, pepper, and onion farms west of the Mississippi.
