River Bourne Community Farm is based on land adjacent to Cow Lane in the village of Laverstock, Salisbury. Initially on 63 acres of land adjoining the River Bourne, the farm has developed into a sustainable working farm, supported by full-time staff and by volunteers.The farm is managed by The River Bourne Community Farm C.I.C. This is a 'Community Interest Company' designed specifically for those wishing to operate for the benefit of the community rather than for the benefit of the owners of the company.Education plays a large part of the farm, giving local educational establishments access to the day-to-day work of the farm whilst stressing sustainability and ecologically sound practices. A traditional herd of cattle, with sheep, pigs and hens is complimented by some crop planting. Fruit and vegetables are grown in our education field and polytunnel. Visitors are welcome to come and have a look around the farm and see all the animals including our very friendly goats and donkeys. We have a farm shop selling eggs from our chickens, pork and sausages from pigs reared on the farm, local honey and many other lovely treats! We also have a cafe where you can get refreshments, home-made cakes and light lunches and snacks. Check our website for events, workshops and other information.

Love our local farm. Various events happen throughout the year. My kids love visiting, seeing the animals no river dipping.

We expected a bit more from this, than a handful of pigs, two donkeys, some rabbits, some guinea pigs, a turkey and some sheep. Walked around, picked some wild blackberries and left, total took around 30minutes so not really worth the journey.

Lovely and quiet and interesting animals to look at - the black turkey was a favourite and the little piglets. There are also sheep, cows, donkeys, goats, a lovely little farm shop and a bench to eat a picnic at. A nice place to break...More

The first time I visited Riverbourne Community Farm I was pleasantly surprised with how this had evolved over the years. Originally a group of locals got together to develop allotments. With their success in the venture came new buildings: plans for a greater eating area...More
