The lovely people from Riverford Organic Farmers will be visiting us at nursery tomorrow (Tuesday 13th September) to set up a stall between 3pm and 6pm. The children have already tasted their gorgeous fruit boxes and we look forward to welcoming them into nursery to hear more about how they grow and harvest their produce.
If you are unfamiliar with Riverford, they have been growing organic veg since 1987, choosing varieties for flavour and looking after our soil, wildlife and birds. Every day they pick, pack and deliver the very best from our fields straight to customer’s doorsteps. Their veg boxes recently won ‘Ethical product of the decade’ at the Observer awards.
Their charity partner Send a Cow also helps African families and orphans to grow their way out of poverty. Like them, they believe in good farming as the source of food, lives and communities.
If you’d like to help, there are different ways you can donate.
– Add a £1 donation to Send a Cow to any Riverford order you purchase.
– Refer a friend to Riverford and they’ll donate £10 on your behalf
– Email them on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01803 762059 if you’d like to donate.
Pop along to the see them tomorrow to find out more and taste some free samples. You will also be able to take advantage of a special offer on the day.
