River Cottage has given millions of TV viewers a taste for great cooking since 1999, when Hugh first brought his famous food ethos to Channel 4. Our hard-hitting campaigns have changed the eating habits of a nation and improved the welfare and sustainability of animals and fish.

The River Cottage farm

Our River Cottage HQ, found on the Devon and Dorset border, is home to everything we do and is the base for our Cookery and Chefs' School, unique dining experiences and memorable events. There is also the award-winning River Cottage Kitchen in Axminster town centre, a relaxed and informal cafe and restaurant. 

It's our greatest delight to share our passion for food integrity and consumption of local, seasonal produce with tens of thousands of people every year.
