returning to our roots

In 1993 Guy Watson set up the Riverford Organic box scheme from his family farm near Buckfastleigh in Devon. At the time there were only a handful of schemes in the country selling their produce direct from the farm to peoples doorsteps. Today the box scheme idea has really taken off, and Riverford is delivering to approaching 25,000 homes around the South West. Most of the fruit and vegetables for the box are grown on Riverford Organic farm or by a group of co-operating growers called South Devon Organic Producers. The latest addition to the Devon farm is a field kitchen cooking up fantastic food for visitors to the farm.
