Rogue River Drop Site

Rogue River Drop Site Open!

Do you live in the Rogue River area? Are you looking for a nearby location to shop the freshest of local and organic produce? Rogue Produce and Mystic Valley Farm and Tea Shop now provide you with a fun and convenient way to enjoy the best of what’s available from your favorite local farms and food artisans!

Mystic Valley Farm and Tea shop is one of our newest local vendors at Rogue Produce. The owners of Mystic Valley, Trinity and Steven, are opening the doors of their store for Rogue Produce customers to pick up orders every Friday, between 1pm and 5:30pm!

How it Works

The first step is to sign-up for our FREE, Rogue River Drop Site Membership. The drop site membership removes our standard $12 delivery fee from your orders, and gives you access to our weekly sales.

Once you’ve checked out with your membership, head to our Shop Page, and place an order by 6pm on Tuesday. Rogue Produce delivers your orders to Mystic Valley by 1pm on Fridays, and you can pick up by 5:30pm.

New Benefits for Farmers Market Members

New Farmers Market Benefits!

Since we’re making our first ever increase to our Farmers Market Memberships, we wanted to provide some additional benefits to soften the blow – and to make our service even more fun!

New Benefit #1, Rogue Produce Weekly Lottery

When you order from our Online Farmers Market, your home delivery gets an identifier , like “B-11,” which helps us organize our routes. We’ve decided that each week we will roll the dice to determine which order is the lucky winner of the Rogue Produce Lottery! Our standard weekly prize will be a $10 shopping credit to the winner. Of course, we’ll switch up the prize from time to time; maybe we’ll double the coupon once a month, or give away Rogue Produce Merchandise (see below).

New Benefit #2, Discounts on Merchandise

We’ve started our search for high quality, sustainable merchandise to sell on our store, and we’ll give Members a significant discount on these products (once we know the costs). We’re thinking we’ll start with t-shirts, caps, coffee mugs and water bottles; and we imagine we’ll find some more unique items as we shop around.

Farm Collective Update

It’s no joke when the excavator tips into a ditch! It took us a couple of mornings to pull this thing out, and to put back on the track that fell off one side – the crew is learning a lot about heavy equipment though.

You’ll be happy to know that everyone employed with Rogue Produce is part of the Farm Collective, and it is an endeavor that is proving to bring us all much closer together. Each of us have our own specialties of sorts, and we’re all interested in growing different things and applying our unique skills to the work that needs being done – whether that’s planting, weed whacking, watering, pruning, harvesting, digging, bookkeeping, or administrative work. It all needs getting done!

We have one new commercial client on board with our Community Compost service, Cartwright’s Market, in Medford. We are very grateful for these types of arrangements, because it allows us to pick up a whole lot of food scraps in one trip! Thank you Cartwright’s!

We should be harvesting some more basil in the weeks to come. We’ll also have a few varieties of heirloom and cherry tomatoes; zucchini, potatoes, peppers, cucumbers, melons, Winter squash, and herbs of many varieties soon!

Most of the work we’ve been up to these first few months has been cleaning up the farm and doing fire prevention work, and we did our best with the Summer crop plantings mentioned above. We are all new-comers to farming, but with helpful guidance of our mentor we are confident we’ll have some high quality harvests.

Thank you for your support! Your orders make all this happen  : )

Proud to be Rogue!

Are you passionate about any of the following?

  • Supporting local farms and small businesses
  • Enjoying the freshest and most delicious food products available
  • Saving time and money with home grocery delivery
  • Reducing waste in your local landfill
  • Keeping the dollars you spend local
  • Helping those in need within your community receive nutritious, fresh, and locally grown produce

If any of these are important to you, take a minute to read on and see how Rogue Produce assists you in meeting these objectives in the most convenient and enjoyable ways imaginable!

Supporting Local Farms and Small Businesses

It may just blow your mind when you see the huge list of local farmers and producers we work with. Our emphasis lies always on supporting the inner-circle of vendors in the immediate vicinity of Jackson and Josephine Counties; but we do branch out by purchasing from farms throughout Oregon and the Northwest, and by procuring items that can’t be sourced locally through a reputable distributor, Organically Grown Company.

Home Delivery

We’ve been mastering the logistics of home delivery since we began our enterprise in 2013. We currently deliver to your door every Friday in Ashland, Talent, Phoenix, Medford, Jacksonville, Eagle Point, and White City – as well as some locations in Rogue River and Grants Pass.

Reducing Waste in the Local Landfill

Our Community Compost service not only diverts waste from the landfill, it’s also hugely beneficial to local farms. Instead of having your food scraps sent to the dump, we pick them up and donate them to local farms to be composted and returned to the local soil as a valuable supplement for growing a portion of the produce you purchase through our Online Farmers Market! When you read about how are compost program works and the customer coupon book component your mind will be blown again – it’s all about supporting local and smart resource management!

Giving Local

One of our most recent developments at Rogue Produce is a program that gives you the means of supporting those in need within our community with the purchase of fresh organic produce – with an emphasis on produce grown on the fields of our local farms. Rogue Produce has partnered with the Rogue Valley Food System Network to turn donations into boxes of fresh local food, delivered through the Maslow Project (be sure to select “Rogue Produce Box” so your donations go where you want them).

You can also donate bundles of fresh produce for those preparing dishes for the Ashland Community Peace Meal. When you donate, you help those in our community and support local farms in the process!

These two donation opportunities are a reflection of some good that has come of recent events: in late March of this year several passionate Rogue Produce customers recognized the importance of delivering fresh local produce to individuals and families in need; and these customers stepped up to provide assistance at every level to create these collaborative programs – thank you to everyone who continues to be actively involved in this process!

Sign-Up with Rogue

The fun begins when you register for an account. That gets you subscribed to our mailing list so you receive a weekly notification informing you that we’re ready to take orders for our next Friday delivery. After you register you can sign-up as a member to remove the $12 delivery fee that is usually included with every order. Membership is only $9.99 a month, or $99 for a year! Membership also gets you a discount on our Community Compost service. After you register and sign-up as a member you can order any time from our Online Farmers Market with no delivery or processing fees!

We promise our services will make you Proud to be Rogue! Give us a call if you have any questions, at 541-301-3426; or email us at

We’ve organized your favorite products from local farms and small businesses into 3 delightfully themed selections for home delivery next Friday, February 22nd. Sign-up with Rogue Produce and get busy making tasty meals with these amazing local ingredients!

The Veggie Share

Get your local spinach from Wandering Roots Farm!

We’ve got spinach this week coming in for the first time this year from Wandering Roots Farm, and the hearty salad mix (kale, chard, arugula and mustard greens) returns from Matt at Happy Dirt Veggie Patch. The Veggie CSA Share includes raw sprouted pecans from Maria at Higher Power Raw Foods; a cut of TouVelle Cheddar from Rogue Creamery; a fresh baguette from La Baguette; and we top it off with organic tangerines, Fuji apples, carrots and a couple pounds of red potatoes. Remember that you can substitute additional veggies (you can let us know your preference in the “special instructions” section at the bottom of the order form) for the bread and/or the cheese in the Veggie Share!

The Omnivore Share

Organic pizza dough from Bread Stop Bakery. Choose either original or rosemary!

We are now the exclusive provider in Southern Oregon of the amazing fresh and organic pizza dough from The Bread Stop, in Eugene. They’ve discontinued their deliveries to our area, but we have a special connection that makes the trip north from time to time to stock up! You can choose from the original or the rosemary (use the “special instructions” box to let us know which). We’re also acquiring an amazing tomato sauce – perfect for pizza – from Sweet Creek Foods, also located in the Eugene area. Sweet Creek uses only organic and northwest grown tomatoes for all of their sauces! And to top it off (no pun intended), you can choose from the mild or spicy Italian sausage from Riverdog Farm; you cannot find a tastier sausage for any Italian dish!

Mild or spicy Italian sausage links – you pick!

We’ve thrown in a couple of other possible pizza toppings into the Omnivore CSA Share:  crimini mushrooms, red onion, and some of the spinach from Wandering Roots. To round out the share we include a delicious lettuce mix, also from Wandering Roots, as well as some beautiful gold potatoes and Fuji apples.

The Whole Kitchen Share

This CSA Share is for Mexican night! We’ve got the favorite fresh corn tortillas from Jennifer at Windborne Farm, chorizo sausage from Devon at White Oak Ranch, and a new enchilada sauce from Sweet Creek Foods (you can choose from mild red or green)! We include other items to round out an enchilada meal or to make a great breakfast:  a loaf of Little Applegate sourdough from Rise Up! Bakery, red onion, a medley of red and gold potatoes, spinach from Wandering Roots Farm, and a dozen eggs (with a couple of duck eggs mixed in with every dozen) from Harris Family Farm in Central Point. Yummy!

Additional News

Working with Maria at Higher Power has inspired us to add some of her additional products to our list. This week we’ve included her raw bee pollen, and 1 lb. bags of raw granola. We’ve also added Albecore Tuna from Sweet Creek Foods!
