Riverford Homity Pies and Pasties scoop prizes!
“Simple but amazingly good’ – now it’s official. Old favourites, Riverford Homity Pies and Pasties scoop prizes at the 2012 Soil Association Organic Foods Awards. It’s great to be recognized for two of our real core products we make by the thousand every week” and then, guess what? The homity pies did it again in 2013, as did three of our soups, our treacle tart and Seville orange marmalade.
These days, most of our food comes from factory production lines. It’s more Ford ‘model T’ than food as our grandparents knew it. Our production kitchen is just that – a kitchen. Anyone with the most basic knowledge of cooking would recognise everything that’s going on. They should do because it’s just what they’d do at home – on a larger scale.
The kitchen moved from the back of the shop a few years ago. Now we are just over the hill at Hole Farm with Riverford Organic Dairy. As well as the above mentioned pies, soups and marmalade, we make an impressive range of pasties, preserves, cooked meats, cakes and tray bakes, dips and frozen ready meals. Most of the ingredients are organic, as many as possible are from the farm and, most importantly, they’re all easily recognised.
