Riverview mill farm

White Graves Road

Ranger, Georgia 30734

(678)910-2831

Ranger, Georgia may be the farm’s mailing address, but it’s the banks of the Coosawattee River north of Ranger that Riverview Farms calls home. Nestled into a crook of the river, the farm has been our family’s stewardship since the 1970s; we started growing certified organic crops in 2000. Today, we operate our entire farm as a closed-loop, single-source entity, one that exceeds organic standards. We grow delicious produce, heritage breed pork, grass-fed beef, and grains that we gently grind into grits, cornmeal, and polenta.

Our farm isn’t small and it isn’t big. We fall in the middle, exactly where farming of the future will be. We use natural cycles to increase the fertility of our farm’s soil over time: cover cropping, crop diversity, composting, and rotational grazing through pasture and forest. The vitality of our soil is the bottom line for every farming decision.

Our animals happily roam in the fresh air of the pastures, forests, and swamps of their home, every day. All of our animals are bred, born, and raised on the farm, and we grow everything that they eat from feed crops, to pastures, forests, and non-sellable-but-delicious-to-them veggies. Yes, pigs love melons and tomatoes too! Thanks to their manure, our fields are fertilized with rich organic compost.

Living in harmony with the cycles of nature and the communities that we feed, the quality and flavor of our food tells the Riverview Farms story. One bite and you’ll know the difference that full-circle farming makes. Visit Site.

wellfleets

P.O. Box 1439

Wellfleet, Massachusetts 02667

800-5-RAWBAR (800)572-9227

Wellfleet oysters have been considered some of the world’s best for generations. The Wellfleet oyster is an eastern oyster, crassostrea virginica by species, the same kind of oyster that grows in Long Island Sound, as far south as the Chesapeake Bay, and up into Canada’s Maritime Provinces in the north. In the beginning of the 1800s, Wellfleet’s native oyster population was nearly depleted. Aquaculture, as we know it today, began as Wellfleetians imported young oysters from points south, flavored and fattened them in local estuaries, then harvested them for sale in the lucrative Boston market. Although people may not agree on which oysters are best, they do agree a real difference exists among oysters grown in different locations. Wellfleet oysters tend to be long and strong-shelled. Experienced tasters know that they are plump and clean with a distinctively good balance of creamy sweetness and brine. But what else makes Wellfleet oysters special?
