New this week: Riverview Farms
riverviewfarms

With okra, spaghetti squash, and PORK!

We may be located in north Georgia, but in the world of farming, Riverview Farms falls right in the middle. We’re a medium-sized farm that grows a fair quantity of delicious vegetables and fruits, alongside the complimentary activities of our heritage breed pigs and cattle. Almost all the time, wriverviewpigse sell directly to our end customer.

We practice Full Circle Farming. We are (unusually so) a closed-loop medium-sized farm, where our land supports our livestock, and the livestock supports our land—building soil fertility for growing all of our animals’ feed, and produce. It’s a balancing act. We don’t overreach the capacity of our pastures,fields, and forests, and never use artificial or toxic means to force our land or our animals to yield more. Our farming techniques exceed organic standards, and harkens back to a time when farming did not depend on outside, artificial support. Taste our succulent heritage pork or a fragrant juicy melon and you’ll know; our good-for-you-and-the-world practice is not only sustainable, it’s delicious too!

New this week: Golda Kombucha

goldakombuchaAtlanta’s first kombucha tea company has arrived. Meet Golda. A fermented beverage derived from a family recipe. Kombucha is a probiotic drink known for aiding digestion and immune support while energizing the body and mind.

Golda Kombucha is local, healthy and refreshing.

The recipe for Golda Kombucha tea comes from a vivacious 93 year-old named Golda. A living testament to wellness, Golda has been brewing and drinking her own kombucha for more than 20 years at her home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Now her family recipe, unchanged through the generations, has been passed down again to her granddaughter: the brewmaster behind Golda Kombucha.
