The Farm


the owner & operator


Charlie Wainger was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1986. In the summer of 1989 his mother and father drove cross country to raise him in Redmond, WA. After receiving a degree from Central Washington University,  in journalism, he found himself working produce in Seattle to pay the bills. During this time he started a hobby garden and it soon grew into a passion. Eight years later he started his farm in Redmond, using the two acres he was raised on. Named after one of his treasured albums, Rain Dogs by Tom Waits. Subsequently Rain Dog Farm is much like Mr. Waits, rough, kind, and in it for the long haul.
