About Rogue Flavor

campaign_pic1The Rogue Flavor campaign encourages your support and appreciation of our local farmers, winemakers and artisan producers of specialty foods. Our locally owned farms and food businesses create the distinctive flavor of our community –whether it’s world-class cheeses or your favorite local restaurant.

The rogue flavor label means that the product was grown or produced by a locally owned independent business in the Rogue River watershed.  Fresh fruits, vegetables and animal products were raised here.  Specialty food items are produced here, but may contain ingredients that were not grown in the Rogue Valley.

Local food carries a wealth of benefits. It's fresh and tastes great. It keeps money in your region by putting dollars in farmers’ pockets. It fosters strong communities and has the potential to improve the landscape and natural environment.

You can help ensure continued access to local food that is good for you, good for farmers, good for the local economy and good for the earth. Here’s how:

Look for the Label:
The Rogue Flavor CampaignAt your local grocery and favorite restaurant, the Rogue Flavor emblem will identify foods produced locally. Please look for it and ask for it. Look for the The Rogue Flavor guidebook at local food purveyors. It will guide you to wonderful foods, wines and flavors throughout the the Rogue Valley.

Use your voice:
Tell restaurants and retail stores that you found them in the Rogue Flavor guide and that it’s important to you as a customer that they buy from family farmers. The more that customers request local food and thank businesses for buying local, the more stores and restaurants will buy local food.
