Martin and Jane Emmett (Riverford vegetables)
In 2003 Martin and Jane Emmett were living in Maidenhead, Berkshire. Martin ran a luxury car dealership whilst Jane worked as a senior treasury analyst for Canadian Telecoms Company Nortel. When the stress of their busy lives got to them, Martin wished he could just be a van driver and Jane craved more time at home with their children, Joe and Grace.
In 2008 Martin and Jane Emmett live in Cornworthy, Devon. Martin runs a fleet of vans delivering organic vegetable boxes in Torbay and South Hams and is a regular delivery driver himself. Jane works from home managing the Riverford Farm Organic Box Delivery Franchise which has been their business since August 2006.
So it sounds like the Emmetts’ dreams have come true; but the transition didn’t exactly happen in line with a well thought out and executed plan. Initially they both just wanted a change of career and to bring the children up in a more pleasant environment than the one they saw developing in the South East. Like many, they had holidayed in Devon and chose our neck of the woods as the place for their new life (well who wouldn’t?). Martin stayed in the motor industry, managing a Volvo dealership in Plymouth, whilst Jane set about establishing a new home in Cornworthy.
When Jane found work in the franchise office at Riverford Farm she learned about and became inspired by Riverford’s organic vision.
Jane had taken time out to be at home with Joe; Martin wished he didn’t have to travel into Plymouth each day, and then Riverford - God Bless Em! - decided that they would franchise out the local South Hams and Torbay delivery territory. Jane knew how to run the business and could do so from home and Martin could manage the fleet of 3 vans and still get a lot more time with the family.

Of course not everyone has the pleasure of dining with Jane Baxter, Head Chef of the Field Kitchen, Sam Miller, Field Kitchen Manager and Jane Emmett, owner of Riverford Home Delivery.
Jane Emmett and her husband Martin have been co-owners of the Riverford Home Delivery franchise for Torbay and South Hams for four years. They are an independent company but have built their business on the same strong values as the Farm itself. "We always go the extra mile for our customers," explains Jane. "It may be something simple like carrying their veg boxes from our van through to the kitchen, but it's these little things that have helped us increase our deliveries to 800 properties a week. We can deliver at short notice and to holiday lets."
The boxes offer a surprising amount of variety and the basic veg boxes can be added to with meat and dairy. "Up to 80% of the produce is from the UK but Riverford also has a corporate farm in France which enables us to fill the 'hungry gap' in spring when UK crops are not ready," explains Jane.
