Welcome to Riverford Farm Shops!

Excuse the mugshot of me but apart from our ethos and our pork and herb sausages, I’ve been the one constant factor over the last thirty one years. I’d like to think I’m a little more photogenic than a banger, however good it might be. From humble beginnings in an old piggery, the Staverton shop has moved all of ten yards but grown from farm shop to emporium selling food with provenance whether it be home produced, local, organic or just plain good. Our shop at Yealmpton is the same with a thriving cafe and, as I write,
more of a seafood offering. There’s also a cafe at Staverton, recently opened and still finding it’s feet. Thirty years is a long time in the food business but I’m glad to say that it’s been so satisfying that I still get a real buzz out of it. By cutting out many peripheral costs seen as indispensable by bigger businesses, we’ve helped show that small scale local food production can work without costing the earth. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
