Want to try a Riverford veg box? These two-hour, hands-on cooking classes are the best way to get started.

Organic veg straight from the farm.

Learn essential
veg prep skills

Like having an allotment without the digging.

Sit down to an
inspiring organic feast

Live life on the veg

Enjoy your first
veg box at home

Together we’ll turn a brimming box of veg, fresh from our farm, into an inspirational organic feast. You’ll get stuck in, learning lots of essential skills – e.g. the best way to slice greens and segment citrus, and how to make sure your onions never catch in the pan.

Your first veg box is included in the price of the class, to be delivered the following week. When it arrives, you’ll be ready to dive in and try out all your new tricks and recipe ideas, starting what we hope will be a whole new life of veg boxes.

It’s very relaxed – class sizes are small, so there’s lots of opportunity for questions and individual guidance, and to chat about what veg box will suit you. After the class, we’ll sit down to enjoy the meal over a glass of organic wine or beer.

Spaces cost £40, including a two-hour class, meal with drinks, Riverford cookbook, and home delivery of your first medium-sized veg box (8 varieties of veg).
