    Correct farm name

    Hello,



    I am setting up a farm and as it is on the banks of a river I would like to name it accordingly. Which one of the following is the correct way to write the name of the farm:



    1. Riverside Farm

    2. River Side Farm



    Many thanks

    hi,
    Is "set up" the best verb, please?
    thanks.

    Maybe not. "Establishing" or "building" could be used, as could many other words. But "setting up" is acceptable.

    For what it's worth, farmers in the Midwest would probably just say something like "I'm going to start farming down by the river." However, that sounds like the farm already exists. If no farm currently exists and the land has to be cleared and essentially turned into a farm, then they might say "I'm going to start a farm down by the river." Other than that, I agree with Raymott.

    And yes, Riverside.
