First Rain Farm is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, just outside of Nevada City, California. At 2500’ elevation, the farm is a mixture of coniferous and deciduous tree species, which surround our fields and dominate the landscape. Trees love growing here, and so do we! Our farm is certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers. We pride ourselves on our care for the soil, and our on-farm production of 90% of our fertility needs through the use of animals and the generation of compost. We have been operating using no-till practices since 2017 and continue to discover ways in which to increase yields, produce quality, and the diversity of products we offer while improving our soil's fertility, its ability to sustain life.
