Riverford Organic, Home Farm, delivers award-winning organic food fresh from the fields straight to your door. There’s nothing Riverford doesn’t know about fruit and veg (they’ve been growing it for nearly 25 years) but the farm has plenty more to offer. Choose from a range of weekly organic essentials like eggs, milk, meat, juice and cereal, and even wine and chocolate when you need a treat. It’s great value too – their vegboxes are around 20% cheaper than supermarkets and delivery is free (you don’t need to be in).

The story began when local farmer Peter Richardson, whose family has farmed at Home Farm in Newby Wiske for three generations, met Guy Watson, who started the Riverford box scheme in Devon.

Peter and his wife Jo-ann had always grown cereals and potatoes and kept pigs at Home Farm. In 1996 Peter converted the farm to organic, renewing his love of producing food and caring for the land. He also began to grow more vegetables. Meanwhile, Guy was looking for a like-minded farmer with a passion for veg to set up a box scheme in Yorkshire. He knew he'd found the right partner in Peter – and so the box scheme began. Peter turned his old pig shed into a box packing barn and Riverford on Home Farm was born.
