Guy Watson began farming organically at Riverford, South Devon, in 1985. What started out as a vegetable-delivery service for local shops soon morphed into a groundbreaking home-delivery box scheme that now has sister farms in Hampshire, Cambridgeshire and Yorkshire. Riverford has now become one of the country’s largest independent growers, certified by the Soil Association.
Jane Baxter has been head chef at Riverford’s Field Kitchen since 2005. She trained with Joyce Molyneux at the Carved Angel in Dartmouth before moving on to the River Cafe in London. Subsequent years of travelling and cooking her way around the Southern Hemisphere have greatly influenced her cooking style.
