As the seasons revolve, we look forward to the changes this brings. As we say goodbye for the season to certain crops, sometimes with sadness, sometimes relief we are always excited by the beginning of a new crop – Tomatoes and Courgettes in Summer or Savoys and Purple Sprouting Broccoli at the back end of the year.
Growing food seasonally brings its own challenges but also huge rewards. Our backs may be thankful by late April when the last of the Purple Sprouting Broccoli are picked but we do it with a tinge of sadness and always questioning whether there are things to be done differently next season.
At Riversfield we grow with flavour and taste in mind and so go in search of varieties that offer these qualities ahead of the uniformity synonymous with modern day mass production.
By appreciating, cultivating and nurturing the natural environment at Riversfield with a more gentle approach we are rewarded with great tasting vegetables.
Everything is weather dependent

This is a general list of the main vegetables grown at Riversfield Organic Farm. Other crops do make an appearance from time to time and we are always open to requests if customers have a particular vegetable in mind that they would like to see grown.
Some of our vegetables are available for long periods during the year crossing over the seasons while some only make a fleeting appearance.
