Everything we grow in the River Cottage veg garden is organic
There are two main reasons why we choose organic produce at River Cottage. The first one undoubtedly is the quality of it, the sheer quality of organic fruits, vegetables and meat. It just tastes better. I believe an organic carrot does really taste better than a mass-produced conventionally-farmed one.
The second reason of course is sustainability. At River Cottage we want to be part of a farming system that looks after the soil and that doesn’t deplete its goodness which is so important to producing great fruits and vegetables. We don’t want to top the soil up with artificial chemicals that will find their way into our produce. In the end, we want all our guests here to taste the difference and know that they are making a difference.
