Come and see how and where we grow our veg on our Devon farm. No two visits to Riverford are the same. As the crops change with the seasons, so do our tours.

Self-guided farm tours

Visitors are welcome to come and collect a map and audio set recorded by Guy Watson and take a walk round the farm. We can even lend you wellies! We recommend you allow around 1.5 hours to do the full walk, but you’re welcome to take your time, or trim the route to suit you.

These walks are available anytime from 8:30am to dusk, all year round. There’s no need to book, just drop in to the Field Kitchen. The walks are free of charge. Should you like to, donations to our charity, Send A Cow, are welcome.  

There are limited numbers of audio players available, so if you’d like to come in a large group give us a call and we’ll make sure you have everything you’ll need.

Customers that have booked to eat lunch or supper in our award winning Field Kitchen often enjoy this self-guided tour to enhance their visit.

Guided tours

On the tour you’ll see our vegetables growing, clover leys and pasture, while hearing about the thriving variety of hedgerow wildlife supported in our organic fields. Penny will take you to the best spots and share the spectacular views of the farm with you. Followed by a spectacular organic feast in the Riverford Field Kitchen.
