About Riverview Farms:
Riverview Farms is a certified organic family farm on 200 acres in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachians in Northwest Georgia. In the fertile bottomlands of the Coosawattee River west of Carter’s Lake, we gently cultivate certified organic vegetables. We also raise Berkshire pork, and grass-fed beef on certified organic pastures.
One of the oldest, and largest, certified organic farms in the state, our goal is to work with the environment to enliven the farm through the mutually supported functions of soil, grasses, and animals. With detailed attention to soil quality, animal husbandry, grass production, and crop diversity, our methods are good for the land, good for the animals, and good for people too.
