Evan Coad

Farm worker

Like Tristan, Evan has spent most of his life living in Riverside with his parents and siblings.


He's been a member of the Community since 2012 and was joined by his partner and young sons shortly after that.


As a full-time employee, Evan is involved with everything that happens on the farm. He enjoys the physical nature of the job as well as working with animals.

Charles & Hannah

Farm workers

These part-time folks are the steady support crew on the ground, caring for the animals, milking them and looking after the land.


All live on the farm and most have their children roam free at Riverside Community.

Without their input and daily work, Riverside Milk would be a whole lot less fun and Tristan and Evan would have boring smokos.
