Riverford (vegbox delivery scheme)
Wash Barn, Buckfastleigh, Devon, TQ11 0JU
.....meanwhile, Riverford’s meat comes from our co-operative of Devon farmers who rear their livestock the traditional way, on small-scale organic family farms.
Riverford grows seasonal fruit and veg for flavour, not cosmetic perfection. From our magnificent romanesco (a tasty relative of cauliflower) to our buttery squashes, our vegboxes bring way more than your 5-a-day. With free delivery and inspiring recipes every week, you don’t know seasonal cooking until you’ve tried Riverford.
We are farmers ourselves and if we don’t grow what we sell, we have a policy of buying direct from the growers and producers wherever possible. We also agree our prices with them well in advance, providing a level of income security that is far from how many supermarkets operate. All of our produce is delivered by local vegmen and vegladies, who are knowledgeable about seasonal produce and help their customers get the best from their meat and vegboxes.
We have also produced two popular cook books: The Riverford Farm Cook Book and Everyday & Sunday, Recipes from Riverford Farm.
Our awards include Best Online Retailer in the Observer Ethical Awards (2013, 2011 and 2010), and Best Independent Retailer in the RSPCA Good Business Awards 2011 as well as being a finalist in the RSPCA Animal Hero Awards 2013.
