Riverford review: first delivery and impressions
Since moving house a few months ago, we have finally got round to organising an organic fruit and veg delivery.
At our old house, we got Abel and Cole deliveries who I also highly recommend, but they don’t deliver to our new address, so we had to find someone else. I tried to go with a really local company, but I couldn’t find anything that was organic.
We decided to give Riverford a try, especially as I stumbled across their amazing £15 off offer which seemed too good to miss out on. The box we chose at first was the large fruit and veg box which is around £25, so the new customer offer saved us more than 50% off our second delivery. Amazing!
The first delivery arrived and was delivered by a very friendly chap. He apologised for his lateness, even though we weren’t expecting him at any particular time and assured me he will usually be here before 8 am. Any time is good though as we have a safe place the veg can be left if it’s early or we are out!
The veg was in great condition and ready to put away, though we’ll give it all a quick rinse before we use it.

Riverford review: six months on
Just popping back to update this post six months on in October 2022, around six months after we took part in the Riverford introductory offer. We've continued as customers and are still very happy with our deliveries!
They usually leave our box in our safe place, since that first delivery, and we just grab it when we are ready (or when we remember!)
A couple of times they did leave it on the doorstep, not sure why, but I messaged them and since then it's been put in our safe place. Maybe a different driver for a couple of weeks and he didn't know our safe place.
The veg is all great, not always as clean as the first deliveries so we do have to spend a bit of time each week scrubbing the carrots and potatoes!
Obviously, the items change each week, but we like that as it means we eat and try and variety of fruit and veg. The fact Riverford organic is a subscription box is also convenient as it means we always get a supply of fruit and veg without thinking about it each week.
We can change our box size or type of box whenever we like. We can also pause if we need a break or we're away. It's very flexible.
We haven't ordered anything other than some of the fruit and veg products, but they do sell lots of other products so you can potentially get your weekly food shopping from them!
The price has gone up twice on the box we order as they've had two price increases, but only slightly. I still think it's good value for local organic vegetables and fruit that supports the farmers and not supermarket profits. It's not been raised enough to put us off ordering.
I also love the fact there is no packaging waste, unlike when we get everything at the supermarket! All the organic items always have so much packaging waste in stores, which is a shame. I'm still hoping the supermarkets sort this issue out asap and use eco-friendlier packaging at the very least, made from vegetable 'plastic' instead of plastic!
What would I improve about Riverford organic fruit and veg deliveries?
The only thing we can’t do with Riverford which was a bonus with Abel and Cole is to specify a list of items we never want. There’s no editing the boxes with Riverford, but you can change the entire box up to a couple of days before the delivery if there are items that are really of no use.
Luckily there aren’t too many items we don’t like, so this shouldn’t be much of a problem. Hopefully a feature Riverford might consider to add.
Otherwise, we are happy with our first Riverford delivery at our new address and looking forward to many more!
