Riverdale Organic Farm
Riverdale Farm is a small, family run organic fruit and vegetable farm in the heart of the Norfolk fenland. They believe that farmers should work with nature, not against it, to produce the freshest, most delicious local produce possible. For them this means never using nasty chemicals or artificialities, relying on nature’s own remedies and rhythms to grow healthy, full flavoured fruit and vegetable
The farm’s founders, Karen and Edwin Broad have worked in the organics industry since 1985. With the experience this gave them, they set up an organics business in their living room in 1992. Three years later they were given the opportunity to buy a few acres of Victorian orchard that adjoins the back garden of their house. This first plot of land was to be the very beginnings of Riverdale Farm.
Over the next two years, the small overgrown orchard was tidied and converted to organic land, piece by piece over the last 10 years the farm has expanded into the area they farm today.
