Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to bring fresh, organic produce, meats, and grains directly from our farm to your table each week.  CSA’s strive to develop an available local food supply, encourage land stewardship, and build a sense of community. A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm […]

    The Mythic Central Oregon

    What is the word for the smell of growth and decomposition at the same time?  I thought it was Fecund.  This only describes abundance.  Today we are reeling from the swift snatch of our tender crops.  We lost 25 acres of beans, squash, corn, potatoes, and basil last night to a deep dip to 26 […]

    Spring: Turn the Dirt

                  This is the time of year that the earth digests its cover crops and composts so that nutrients can be available for our summer crops.  Organic farming takes time.  We don’t give our crops a shot of chemicals to grow.  We depend on our soil, and the billions […]

    February Harvest

    Collective thoughts for January CSA

    Hello winter CSA members, Wonderful to see you all yesterday.  Thank you for making it to the drops on time and hauling home the deepest winter goods.  Storing food and raising food in the winter is a real trick, and the CSA becomes a true adventure.  Sometimes in variety, but more often in salvage.

  • Purple Vikings.  Best potato ever.

    FREE POTATOES SATURDAY 10.24.15 FROM 10am-Noon.

    Dear Friends of Rainshadow! We’ve gotten better at growing potatoes!  Three years ago we lost our potatoes to a deep freeze in December and gave away 50 tons to the community on New Year’s Day.  Since then we’ve worked on our local relationships with restaurants, grocery stores and families to grow and store a year-round […]

Our first waves of […]
