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.
Our guided tours take place mid-week (April to October) and need to be booked in advance.
Penny, our Head Gardener, will pick you up from the Riverford Field Kitchen at 11am. If you want to make an afternoon of it, why not book in for lunch at our award winning restaurant – you’ll be back in plenty of time, and certainly have built up an appetite.
On the walk
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.
While the light is good (June – August), we also have an evening tour at 5pm. Perfect if you want a walk before supper. Please book in advance if you’d like to join us.
The walks are family friendly, but there isn’t transport along the route; we leave it to parental discretion however smaller feet may find it hard going. It may be chilly and wet so make sure you layer up! We take a minimum group of 5. We’ll let you know the day before if we won’t be running the tour. Please arrive in plenty of time - why not enjoy a coffee at The Field Kitchen while you wait?
£7 per person, min group 5 people.
NB We will take smaller groups at a minimum cost of £35.
