Organic Produce

All our produce is Certified Organic by California Certified Organic Farmers. We pride ourselves on how we treat our precious soil and the surrounding land we call home. We practice no-till farming methods which disturb the soil strata in minimal ways and leave the soil biology healthy and intact.  Our primary source of fertility is the compost we make from the biologically-rich bedding from our goat barn. This bedding is a laying of leaves and wood chips with goat manure and urine. Our self-sufficiency in this way is a point of pride. We grow crops intensively on three acres while practicing crop rotation and interplanting.

Contract Grazing

We offer a subscription grazing service in our immediate neighborhood (Rock Creek Rd. / Rector Rd.) In these times of catastrophic fire and a changing climate, we must refocus our attention on the stewardship of the land that surrounds us. Our forests are in a poor state of health due to a lack of management and decades of fire suppression. Using our herd of Nubian x Kiko goats we are working to restore the health of the land that surrounds our farm and the neighborhood through regular planned grazing. We are offering our services to neighbors and aim to tie large acreage together under one management program to improve forest health and safety from the risk of fire.

If you are interested in learning more about this service or joining the effort please contact us by email: firstrainfarm@gmail.com

 

Vegetable Seeds

We grow vegetable seed for various seed companies. We believe that growing seed is a vitally-important part of a local food system. In addition to selling wholesale, we plant much of our own seed for our local fresh sales. Producing and using seed locally is the best way to adapt our varieties to local soil and climatic conditions.
