We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
Our Home Farm is a small organic, horticultural farm of 14 acres situated in the Stour Valley at Crundale, Kent between Ashford and Canterbury. Our fields slope up towards the North Downs, giving us light, chalky soil. This free draining soil, blessed by the warmer climate of the Southeast, produces vegetables of great taste and quality. As well as our Home Farm, we also rent a Victorian Walled Garden at Olantigh near Wye and fields covering 100 acres below Wye Crown (formerley part of the Wye College Farm).
Ripple Farm has been certified Organic since 1989 and is certified organic by the Soil Association. The farm itself is essentially a market garden producing a wide range of organically grown vegetables, salad crops, herbs and a small amount of fruit. With this produce, Ripple Farm Organics runs an East Kent vegetable box scheme; sells at Wye and Whitstable Farmers' Markets in Kent, and Stoke Newington Farmers' Market in London; and supplies specialist organic/wholefood shops, Growing Communities and other box schemes and home deliveries in London as well as shops, cafes and pubs in East Kent.
We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.
Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
