Eggs & Fresh Produce
At Riverside we produce some very fresh, delicious pastured eggs. They come from hens that are tended to by hand and roam free on green pasture under blue skies. They're protected by our beautiful Maremma dogs Atlas, Nero and Donna. Raising our hens the way nature intended produces some pretty amazing eggs!
We are at the Gawler, Mt Barker and Wayville Showgrounds Markets every weekend and we also supply our eggs to a range of retail outlets and restaurants. For a list of current stockists please click HERE. For any other retail or wholesale enquiries please don't hesitate to contact us.
We also produce several different types of garlic which are grown organically and planted and harvested by hand.
Growing up working with animals on Riverside, Ellen has always had a special love for sheep. This led her to a decision to start up a small dairy on the property to highlight the diversity of the humble sheep.
The dairy is 'small' with no more than 60 sheep in the flock, made up from Awassi and East Friesian bloodlines.
Ellen believes 'small' is the key to having happy sheep giving amazing milk to be crafted into rich, pot set yoghurt, haloumi, ricotta, labneh and other products.
Farming at Riverside has always been about low stress life for animals and a low impact on the land leading to very contented sheep.
The dairy is at the Adelaide Showgrounds Market at Wayville every second Sunday. Please don't hesistate to contact us regarding retail or wholesale enquiries. For a list of current stockists please click HERE.

Sprawling over a thousand acres and spanning six generations since 1848, Riverside Farm was established when Joseph Barritt, an early South Australian settler, acquired a land grant of 100 hectares on the bank of the North Para river near Lyndoch. Over the years more land was added and between 1857 and 1861 the group of buildings which form the centre of today’s farm was established.
The homestead, coach house, stables and workmen’s quarters were all built in this period. Riverside Farm is a mixed farming property in the beautiful and fertile Barossa Valley. As well as pastured eggs, garlic and a sheep dairy, we also produce prime lamb, wool and wine grapes.
Now in its sixth generation, Ellen and Richard (and partner Kane) are working to take Riverside in a new direction, diversifying the farms produce and creating a vision for the future. Indigenous employment and visibility is a key part of this vision, recognising the pain of the past and making reconciliation a part of our ethos.
