South Devon Organic Producers Ltd
– growing together organically –
South Devon Organic Producers Ltd is a farmer owned co-operative, growing organic vegetables.
SDOP was founded in 1998 by Guy Watson with one of the primary aims of meeting the increasing demand for UK grown produce. South Devon was an obvious choice as the centre for the production and marketing of quality organic produce.
The Co-operative grows over 85 different vegetables throughout the season, from winter essentials to summer specials. SDOP is possibly the largest organic grower and supplier co-operatives in the UK with over 600 acres in vegetable production. We ensure that vegetables are delivered from the growers to the customer as fresh from the field as possible.
We have grown steadily since then, and currently, our main products/services are:
- Technical Support for Members
- Access to the benefits from available grants
- Central administration
- Specialist machines and operators
- A pool of field staff to work on all the farms
- Crop walking
South Devon Organic Producers Mission Statement is:
“ SDOP is a well-established Co-Operative of farmers based in South Devon and South East Cornwall, growing organically and sustainably”
