Riverford Summer Walks

About

Organic farm Riverford is opening its gates to the public for a series of summer walks at its site at
Sacrewell, Peterborough. The walks will take place between 5pm and 7pm from June until
September. The dates are 12 June, 3 July, 7 August and 4 September.

Walks will be followed by a Riverford picnic dinner made using fresh seasonal ingredients. Tickets
are priced at £8 for adults and £4 for children between 5 and 12 years old, there is no charge for
under 5s. Find out more and book tickets at https://www.riverford.co.uk/walks-sacrewell.
Nigel Venni, who helps to run the farm at Sacrewell, says the walks are a chance to experience the
farm at its best: “Each week we deliver boxes of veg and other organic produce across Peterborough
so we thought it would be a great idea to throw our doors open so that people can see what we do
for themselves. During summer, the farm is alive with activity and it’s the one time of the year when
we plant, pick and sow crops all at once – it’s quite a sight. Because our produce is organic, guests
will be able to taste our crops straight off the stalk”

Nigel explains that guests will also have a chance to see the diversity of wildlife on display at the
farm: “Our farm at Sacrewell is home to a number of rare and endangered species. Butterflies brown
argus and small heath have both been spotted on our farm, as have the birds reed bunting and
yellowhammer. We also have flourishing communities of skylark and lapwing, despite their levels
declining nationally.”

It is important to note that Riverford is a working farm and there will be vehicles moving around the
site. There is no transport along the route so all participants should be sure they are capable of
completing the walk before booking. Children are very welcome, though younger ones will probably
find it hard going, the suggested minimum age is 8. As the walks are around crops, dogs are not
permitted. The walk is not suitable for wheelchair users.

Guide Prices

Tickets are £8 for adults, £4 for children 5-12, or free for under 5's.
