We raise food for our customer.


That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal our focus.
At River Cottage Farm, we’re not trying to conquer nature.
We’re nurturing it so we can grow the healthiest possible food for you.

Welcome to River Cottage Farm

Each day we head out to the pastures and work to support every part of the growing cycle

maintaining the perfect balance of minerals in the soil, raising the healthiest grass to feed our livestock, and supporting our animals throughout their lives so they can live and produce well. From start to finish, our process stays true to a single motivation: providing you, our customers, with the nutrition you need to make healthy choices and gain back the lost knowledge of The Art of Eating.
