Farm description

Old River Farm is a partnership of Mary Simpson and Ross Snider and one hub in a network of innovation, people, and positive energy working towards a healthy, rejuvenating water cycle of flow waters to the Thames. Our friends, family, and community enjoy the Old River Farm. This land enhances the health of the people who spend time here. This farm has been owned by the descendants of John and Elizabeth Simpson for five generations. Anyone of those generations could have sold the farm but it remains in the family to this day. Looking forward to the next 7 generations, Mary and Ross want this farm to stay local - stewarded by the people who live here.

Farm opportunity

We have hosted many people through https://www.workaway.info/. These guests are passing through: learning skills, exchanging culture, bringing the world to our doorstep. Through Farmlink, we hope to connect with new farmers that would stay longer.
