Welcome to Riven Rock Farm
From the Top of Virginia to Your Table
Home of Heritage Galloway Cattle, Katahdin Sheep and Gloucestershire Old Spot Pigs
Riven Rock Farm is located in beautiful Highland County, Virginia. We strive to offer a place where the wild meets agriculture, a place where healthy ecosystems and biodiversity are priorities over monocultures and dollars.
Our mission at Riven Rock Farm is to develop and nurture a holistic, sustainable mountain farm- and to share our products, services and experiences with like-minded people.
We raise purebred, heritage breed, Galloway beef cattle (Belted and Solid colors), Katahdin Hair Sheep, and free range laying hens. Our heritage breed Galloway beef and Katahdin lamb are delicious, healthy and 100% Grass Fed products. New for 2014, we have brought Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs to our farm.
Riven Rock is comprised of 600 acres of hardwood forests, mountain meadows, and high sweeping pastures. The old celtic word "Riven" means- to split or shatter- and we certainly have our share of split rock formations, cliffs and caves here in our forests and ridges.
Located at close to 3,000 feet in elevation, our summer temperatures are a refreshing change from the "lowlands". Come stay with us at Laurel Run Cabin and refresh your spirit. Enjoy the farm and the surrounding highlands of Virginia.
