Settled amongst the rolling hills of southern Devon is Riverford, a beautiful farm pioneering sustainable and organic farming practices since 1987. Driven by a passion for exceptional food and a determination to break away from the supermarket hold on the supply chain, the family-run farm is the ideal place to organically shop or visit for culinary inspiration.
Our picturesque property, The Barn in Honiton, is just a short drive away from Riverford where you can visit, shop, eat or participate in a range of workshops, themed events and talks from The Riverford Field Kitchen. With its own garden metres away from the restaurant, head gardener Penny cares for a variety of crops to create within the restaurant. Passionate about exploring new culinary possibilities, the chefs experiment with every part of the plant and are committed to cooking without waste.
From learning how to grow your own veg patch, to participating in a wild and foraged cocktail making class, the workshops are all based on the organic and seasonal produce available at the farm. Providing an opportunity to discover new ways of cooking delicious food, the events are an inspiring chance to learn from the experts on how to protect and care for our environment.
One of the most popular events in the programme is Riverford’s Veg Masterclass. Guided by the farm’s renowned chefs, these workshops have been created to show you how to transform a vibrant box of veg into an inspiring organic feast. These hands-on classes will equip you with the essential skills for making delicious food, as well as the confidence to get creative with some of your favourite ingredients.
Committed to sharing great food with wonderful people, these small classes are held in a relaxed environment and are open to all abilities. After the class, the group come together to enjoy an organic feast in The Riverford Field Kitchen.
