RiverView Family Farm

RiverView Family Farm is a working cattle farm.

For more than 200 hundred years (since 1801) and for six generations, this land has been a part of our family. As a land grant, originally the farm contained nearly 2,000 acres.

The farm name is from the river that flowed around the bend by the fields. In earlier years, the river was called the Holston River but the name was changed to the Tennessee River. Fort Loudon dam was built in the early 1940's resulting in the bottom land being flooded by the Fort Loudon Lake. Technically, the name should be LakeView. We chose to keep the original name of RiverView.

We strive to preserve the land. We believe in personal accountability and take responsibility to maintain the farm for future generations to come.

Presently, the farm's main crop is pasture and hay – used to raise Black Angus cattle. In the 1950's, Lafayette Williams started raising and selling market steers as a 4-H project. Each year, families continued to ask for beef from the farm.

In the 1980's, our children, Byron and Rachel, followed in their father's footsteps and were involved in the 4-H steer project. Today, many of the same families and their friends continue to depend on the Williams family for their freezer beef.

The farm has gone through many transitions. It has been a crop farm growing wheat, corn, watermelons and other garden produce. Market hogs and sheep have been raised on the farm. It was once a dairy farm until 1967.

Our goal is to maintain the land with sustainable agriculture practices as we raise Black Angus cattle to produce beef that is naturally delicious and nutritionally superior. We supply individual families with their choice of either grass-fed or grain-fed beef. Beef sales are made to individuals and families and the beef is cut and processed according to individual specification.

Our cattle are born on the farm. The cattle are naturally raised with care in open pastures. The cows spend their entire life in the "closed herd" well acclimated to great pasture and pleasant surroundings.
