A DAY OF FOOD & CONVERSATION II

THE STORY OF A VEG NERD WHO THINKS OUTSIDE THE BOX

The second of three fascinating talks and a gourmet lunch in a magical setting, within the rolling hills of rural South Devon.

Guy Watson is a farmer and founder and creator of Riverford Organic, Britain’s largest supplier of organic produce. The farm was taken over by the Watson family in the 1950s, and in the 1980s Guy decided to convert to farming organically. To find an effective way of distributing his produce, his idea was the weekly veg box scheme, which is delivered direct to customers’ doors with locally grown produce. Guy is a judge for the Observer Ethical Awards and his leadership has seen five previous Observer awards including Best Ethical Business and Best Ethical Restaurant in 2009.
