Riverside Sawmill is located about 12 miles south east of the seaside and University town of Aberystwyth. We are a family business, being owned and managed by Dyfrig Evans for the last 33 years.

We produce preservative treated fencing stakes, posts, rails and high quality, dry, dust extracted wood shavings for equine and animal bedding.

Timber Fencing Products

Timber Fencing Products

We supply a range of timber products including timber posts, stakes, rails, struts, strainers and gateposts suitable for agricultural, construction and garden landscaping use.

All of our timber products undergo high pressure preservative treatment which we carry out on-site. We use Impra®lit ACQ wood preservative which is perfecty designed to give lasting protection. The vacuum-pressure impregnation process achieves the best possible results. You can read more about Impra®lit ACQ here.

High Quality Dust Extracted Bedding

High Quality Dust Extracted Bedding

Our new plant, commissioned towards the end of 2014 is closely monitored for quality and consistency. We use two screeening machines in the processing line, initially a star screener to remove the shards and over sized flakes, then a triple deck oscillating shaker screen which seperates the dust from the shavings and other oversized particles.

This process produces exceptionally high quality shavings. The drying process utilises a carbon friendly biomass burner and rotary drum dryer to remove the necessary moisture down to about 10%.


Equine and Animal Bedding Shavings

Our Shavings

  • 100% Fresh Timber made from fresh, locally sourced untreated timber
  • Very Low Moisture thanks to our carbon friendly biomass burner and rotary drum dryer which removes moisture down to about 10%
  • High Absorbency which prevents urine pooling as the bedding soaks liquids away
  • Comfortable Bed providing a soft insulated cushion for the animal to lay on
  • Non-Slip Surfaces giving the animal a non-slip surface to move about on
  • Dust Extracted to reduce animal respiratory problems and slippage risks


Animal Welfare

Animal Welfare

Whilst straw is often used in stables or for other animal bedding, it contains high levels of dust and spores. Our shavings are dust extracted and have exceptionally low moisture levels. Shavings are packed in heat sealed, clear bags and are the best choice for your animals to reduce respiratory and slippage risks.

See our reviews from existing customers.


Unlike a lot of producers that use recycled lumber from factory and other processing off cuts, we produce the highest quality shavings made from 100% locally sourced fresh timber.
