Recent scientific research suggests we should be eating 10 portions of fruit and vegetables a day to help live a longer life.
To many people that may sound like a lot, but organic farmers and local veg box delivery scheme Riverford believe not.
Andrew and Sam Garnham, who deliver to customers in the Sevenoaks area, said: “Our boxes are all about bringing the best of our fields into customers’ homes. They’re a really inspiring way to cook from scratch, eat seasonally and pack a load of the green stuff into your diet.”
Riverford choose the crops they grow for flavour, rather than cosmetic perfection or high yield, for the carrotiest carrots and potatoes like your grandad used to grow! Customers regularly comment on tasting a difference from supermarket veg. From day one, they have been committed to running the business in an ethical way with minimal environmental impact as they go.
