Welcome Riverside Beef!

Riverside Beef are the newest corporate supporters of Minsmere!

Run by Jon Reeves, Riverside Beef grazes cattle on riverside pastures and water meadows across East Anglia.  Riverside Beef have a strong tradition of supporting conservation – in large part due to Jon’s role as site manager of the RSPB’s Ouse Washes reserve!

Jon has a long standing interest in agriculture and conservation, having worked on farms all his life.  Moving to the Fens and working at Ouse Washes opened his eyes to the role of cattle grazing in managing grassland for the benefit of nature.  Out of this interest Riverside beef was born.

In addition to supplying butchers in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, Riverside Beef also offer farm visits, talks and presentations on farming for nature.
