Good Rain Farm
Good Rain translates to x̌ast sq̓it (hast squeit) in the traditional language of the Sinixt or Arrow Lakes Peoples. Farm Founder Michelle is of Sinixt ancestry. At x̌ast sq̓it Farm we explore our relationship with this land, we decolonize and question our notions of ‘food’ and ‘nourishment’. We support our community to these ends. The farm celebrates all forms of foods emphasizing traditional native foods. Providing a variety of produce with an emphasis on first foods, the farm is poised to focus attention and begin a conversation around food sovereignty. The farm is fortunate to encompass an Oregon White Oak Savannah. With an urge to protect this threatened oak ecosystem and given the focus on local food ethnobotany we are compelled to build a community around the restoration and conservation efforts of the oaks. By reinvigorating the under-story of the oaks with native edibles the farm can serve as an educator to the community about first foods, ecological and cultural conservation. Building a stronger connection to place through positive hands-on learning around food justice, sustainable land stewardship, farming practices and local ethnobotany.
The Good Rain Farm CSA is primarily vegetables, herbs, fruits, and edible flowers and a limited amount of native edibles included. A Standard share includes 8-12 different fresh items. People’s eating habits are very different, but a Standard Share may provide enough vegetables for two veggie-loving adults or a family of four omnivores.
