SpringRain Farm & Orchard is a certified organic family farm located in Chimacum in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula. Our mission is to use the best available knowledge to sustainably and organically produce food for our local community. At SpringRain Farm, we are committed to conservation and caring for the land we live and grow on. The land is protected by an agricultural easement, ensuring that it will remain farm land forever. We steward Chimacum Creek, a salmon stream, and worked with partners to rehabilitate the creek and bring back the salmon. Solar power provides some of our electricity and we are working on other sustainable energy solutions. We think deeply about the health of the soil, the water, the animals, the plants, and the people we farm with.
