Rising River Farm
- Farmers Markets,
- Wholesale Quantities
We are a 15-acre family farm in Rochester, WA and have been certified organic since our beginning in 1994. We grow over 100 varieties of high quality vegetables and culinary herbs for our CSA, farmers markets, as well as a few local stores and restaurants. We sell a wide variety of organic vegetable, herb, and flower starts from April-June. Want to can, freeze, or stock up for the winter? We offer great deals on bulk quantities of pickling cucumbers, green beans, tomatoes, onions, shallots, potatoes, and winter squash.
Farming practices: We are certified organic which means we only use naturally derived fertilizers. We recognize healthy soil is the best defense against pests and disease. We utilize crop rotation, cover cropping, and fallowing of the land to reduce these pressures. We have also made the painful decision to quit growing certain crops that are a particular challenge for us in terms of pests. We do spray occasionally (as an absolute last resort) if there is a particularly nasty outbreak, but the products used are allowed under USDA organic guidelines.
CSA details: Summer, fall and storage shares available. Pick up in Rochester, Tumwater, Olympia and Tacoma.
