Rainshadow Organics is a market garden located located fifteen miles Northeast of Sisters, Oregon. The family farm is operated by Sarahlee Lawrencewho grows dozens of varieties of certified organic vegetables, herbs, berries, and flowers on 27 acres. All of the harvested crops are distributed within 50 miles of the farm. Rainshadow Organics is certified organic with transitional land and uses only sustainable practices, no chemical pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides. The soil fertility is built with composted horse manure from a barn where they sell their hay. They also employ their chickens and an army of worms who supply castings for worm tea that they inject into their irrigation system. An intricate ecosystem is fostered with companion planting, nutrient cycles, flowers, bees, riparian areas, crop rotation, and undisturbed native desert.
