Riverford Organic Farmers

Riverford Organic Farmers

Proper farmers with mud on our boots, we’ve been growing organically for over 30 years. We think differently about food: offering a fair deal to the soil and wildlife on our land, other growers and makers, and you.

Our iconic veg boxes (The Observer’s Ethical Product of the Decade) are bursting with the best of every season – all 100% organic, slow-grown for flavour, and delivered for free.

Food as it should be

Riverford founder Guy Singh-Watson started growing organic veg in 1987, having suffered headaches and nausea after spraying pesticides as a teenager. We’ve stayed true to organic ever since; we reckon it’s the best show in town.

Organic food is food as it should be: with no artificial chemicals, healthy soil, safe habitats for wildlife, and the highest standards of animal welfare. And to make sure we’re treading as lightly on the planet as possible, we never use air freight.

The farmers who deliver

We still grow mountains of organic veg on our original Devon farm, as well as sister farms in Peterborough and Hampshire. You’re welcome to visit our fields any time! What we can’t grow ourselves, we source from small-scale family farmers we know, trust, and look after for the long term.

Riverford became employee owned in 2018. As co-owners, we have the power to protect Riverford’s values forever. Our veg is always straight from the farm – and farmers always reap the rewards.

Live Life on the Veg

Properly nerdy about veg, we always choose the tastiest varieties, and grow them slowly for maximum flavour. From old favourites done right, to the weird world of kohlrabi, salsify, oca and cardoons – there’s always something new to try.

To help you make the most of all that good stuff, our chefs create seasonal recipes to go in every box, with lots more free online. You can even come to our award-winning farm restaurant, The Riverford Field Kitchen, for a fresh feast that will inspire you to put veg at the heart of every dish!

We’re lucky enough to have won a bumper crop of awards, including…
