Riverford Organic Farm

A few weekends ago I went on a trip to the West of England and Someset. It was more of a foodie trip then a wine focused trip but food and wine go together and both concern taking something from the ground and making it into something good. We visited Riverford Organic Farm and were given an extensive tour of the fields as well as enjoying a scrumptious meal at the Riverford  Field Kitchen. Guy Watson, one of the founders of Riverford was our charming host and took us out to the fields to pick our own greens.

Riverford’s business is to grow organic fruit and veg and deliver it to your door. From field to your door in 2 days. Riverford is as organic as they come and cheaper then the supermarkets. To find out more about the veg boxes, click here. It was great to get out of the city and into the countryside. For a fleeting moment, I thought wouldn’t it be great to live in the country. But then I sobered up.

I took about a million pictures but the slideshow below is a condensed version of our trip. Many thanks to Guy, Ben and Charlotte of Riverford Farm for taking time out to spend with a bunch of bloggers on a lovely Spring weekend.


  1. Wasn’t it fun! I really enjoyed getting to hang out with you for the weekend – must organise a rematch soon. (I note with envy that picture of Hannah’s shoes.)

    • Yeah, was great for those of us who really appreciated it! I have to say, I’m so glad I was able to enjoy the countryside and meet such great people. You must come to London soon for a rematch, I’m sure we can rustle up some fun activities here in the capitol.
