We are strong advocates of responsible and sustainable foraging techniques and we will show you how to collect your wild edibles in a way that will have little impact on the landscape.

We will also teach you about the legalities of foraging and how, where and when you can forage for food, whilst keeping on the right side of the law.

One Day Foraging Course

Course Description

Our one day foraging course will give you a fascinating insight into the best wildfoods of the season. You will spend a day in the woods learning to find and identify edible plants, seeds, nuts, flowers and fungi that grow wild in the British countryside.

Depending on the season we may be tapping trees for sap, gathering wild herbs or picking edible fungi, but no matter what we find you will learn how to prepare and transform foraged foods into great dishes, preserves and drinks.

The course includes drinks, a snack and a lunch based around wild ingredients. The lunch will be cooked over an open fire and you can bake your own flatbread in the earth oven. The lunch may include some wild game however we do cater for vegetarians (Please mention on your booking form).

Lunch is included in the course and we will cook this together using foraged ingredients as well as some extras from the store cupboard.
