Welcome to Riverside, a Cornish smallholding promoting biodiversity and producing food for our community.
Our pigs, hens and sheep roam on Cornish pasture, free to express their natural behaviour in small flocks or herds. You can buy free-range eggs, pork and lamb (in season) from our farm stall at Riverside or in the online shop below.
We don't use any pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers at Riverside. Manure from the livestock feeds the kitchen garden and Riverside's biodiversity means there are plenty of natural predators to control pests.
Riverside is rich in flora and fauna with habitats including woodland, wetland, and meadows. These are home to deer, badgers, foxes, voles, owls, woodpeckers, buzzards, songbirds, insects, and fungi.
In 2019 Andy retired from the RAF and we settled in Cornwall. With no background in farming we were on a steep learning curve, but with lots of support from the fantastic local community we soon found our feet. You can follow our journey on the blog or keep up to date by following us on Facebook or Instagram.
