Rainshadow

We raise a hard red spring wheat and soft white fall wheat that we grind into flour with a granite stone mill.  Both are heirloom grain varieties that are high in protein and low in gluten. The hard red fife is a great sourdough bread flour, with a complex nutty flavor. The soft white is more of a pastry flour and perfect for pie crusts, cookies, and muffins. We often use a blend of the two wheats, especially for our pizza dough and biscuits.

We sell our flour in 2 pound bags for $5. You can also purchase the wheat berries for $4. We mill regularly and encourage you to use your flour within a few weeks for maximum nutrients.  It has a much longer shelf-life when refrigerated.

Farm Fresh Eggs by the dozen

Our hens live in the Rainshadow Roost, a “tractor” that moves around the farm.  First thing in the morning, they jump out and graze on our grasses, pastures, and garden beds.  They scratch for little bugs, seeds, and other goodies.  They also receive a special blend diet for layers, that does not include any Genetically Modified (GMO) corn or soy.  We offer our eggs for $7/dozen.  You can find them at farmer’s market or request them any week as an add-on to your CSA share.  First-come-fist-serve.

FLOWERS

We grow mixed wild and cut flowers through the summer months.  We have early lupines, tulips, daffodils, and poppies in June and move into cone flowers, sun flowers, zinnias, gladiolas, mums, blackeyed susans, calendula, sweet williams, hollyhox, flax, and many others.  We also have wild foliage to fill out your local desert bouquets with things like sage, grasses, willow, and rabbit brush.

We offer U-Pick flowers for $30 per 5 gallon bucket by appointment.

We also offer arranged wedding bouquets.  The bride supplies the vases or mason jars, pre-decorated with ribbons or string if you would like.  Bride bouquets are $50, bridesmaid bouquets are $30, large table arrangements are $20 and small table arrangements and boutonnieres are $10.

We are happy to plant special flowers for you if you contact us before April 15th.
