Wild Food, Foraging & Cooking Courses

Our hedgerows and woodlands are full of edible treats. Learn which ones make a tasty salad, which ones flavour ice cream, which mushrooms grow where. We have 1 and 2 day courses on seasonal foraging and wild food cookery.

Artisan Food Courses

These day courses are your chance to learn some of the most amazing food skills: how to butcher a deer into joints, sausages and more, how to create sour dough and other breads, or down on the farm, how to milk goats and make cheese.


These courses are run at many different venues and are all based around food, craft or the outdoors. Follow the link to find out more about the current available courses. Places are strictly limited on the extra courses, so book now!

Coastal Foraging
& Fishing Courses

Discover the wide variety of fish, seaweed, shellfish and coastal wild edibles around our shores. We have courses on the rocky coast of North Yorkshire and the sandy shores of Cumbria - both are stunning places in which to learn.

Taste the Wild on Television

Due to the amazing weather this year, the crop of wild hedgerow berries has been amazing. It was so good it even made the news!

Chris from Taste the wild was asked to join BBC news reporter Jenny Hill for a bit of foraging and cooking in the woods.

Taste the Wild Locations

Taste the wild is based in North Yorkshire with very good road links.

Our main woodland site is within easy reach of the M1, M62 and within ten minutes of the A1.

The woodland does not have a postcode but you will receive directions on booking.

Our coastal courses are based in Staithes on the North Yorkshire coast and Flookburgh on the Cumbrian coast.
