Riverplains has been a working farm for many years and part of the Niceley family since the early 1940′s. The farm is located in Jefferson County and surrounded on two sides by the Holston river. For decades the farm was an active dairy and recently Jennifer Niceley and her family began producing dairy products, vegetables, and spelt flour for friends and family. Everything on this menu will come from the farm and Jefferson County except for the spices!
