About River Bend Farm

River Bend Farm is dedicated to producing healthy, all natural meats. The All-Natural Angus Beef is pasture raised and of superior quality. The animals are raised humanely, with no antibiotics or hormones. The cattle receive a small amount of grain while on pasture to achieve the desirable amount of marbling and tenderness, and in the winter they are fed home-grown grass hay.  

Like their beef, River Bend Farm's Berkshire pigs are raised all naturally, on wholesome grains supplemented with an abundance of garden scraps and loads of apples. Berkshire pork is prized for its flavor, tenderness, and juiciness.

Fresh from pasture to plate, River Bend Farm beef and pork provides a healthy and delicious eating experience. River Bend Farm beef and pork is featured at many fine local restaurants including Ninety Acres and Kings Supermarkets. Please visit for more information.

River Bend Farm is run by Corné Vogelaar. Vogerlaar was born and raised in the Netherlands. His family came to America in 1988, and after earning his degree in Animal Agriculture from Cook College in 1996, Corné became the manager of River Bend Farm in Peapack, NJ. River Bend Farm dates back to the late 1800's, and Angus cattle have grazed these hills since the 1950's. Today River Bend Farm’s 340 acres of pasture and hayground are home to 200 head of Angus and 80 Berkshire pigs. Corné and his family also keep 500 laying hens and raise pastured chickens.
