Riverford Farm

I met with Guy Watson the founder of Riverford Farm and I toured the site. Riverford supports 400 jobs in the local economy but also supports a number of ethical organic producers in this country and beyond. Guy's passion for fresh locally produced food led to the formation of Riverford organic food boxes being delivered to households up and down the country. In addition to the undoubted benefits of their organic farming I was able to visit Riverford Farm Kitchen, where one can enjoy a veritable feast of freshly prepared vegetables. Guy spoke enthusiastically about the cooking of vegetables and said a diced celeriac with an onion and some vegetable stock, cooked for 15 minutes makes a wonderful soup. He was right!
