Wild Feasts in Hay-on-Wye, Herefordshire

We are not a restaurant serving food daily. From time to time we down the farm tools and don our aprons to cook over the fires for you. Whether you are staying guests, live locally or holidaying in the area, you can come visit the Farm and enjoy street food dinners or treat yourself to our 3 course Braai Nights, Sunday Lunches or one of our specially curated wild feasts served in our heated barns or outdoors in great weather, for a real foodie experience you won’t forget. When we serve food is detailed on our calendar. 

Our food is a celebration of the seasons, based on fresh seasonal ingredients direct from the fields, grown organically on the farm, locally sourced or foraged from hedgerows around us. We pickle, powder, dehydrate, ferment, make syrups and freeze as much as we can when produce is bountiful to use all year around.

If you would like us to cater for a special celebration (anniversary, engagement, birthday, wedding) or for your company works do,  do get in touch

We are South African and experts at cooking outdoors on open fires just as the Drovers did here many moons ago. The smokiness adds to the overall flavour of our naturally grown, ethically produced ingredients. You will dine in our heated barn, farm courtyard or outdoors in the fields under the trees. Our fully stocked bar serves farm inspired cocktails as well as a selection of local gins, beers, cider & wine. We are up in the hills and as a loyal guest put it  “an undiscovered gem of a secret I want to keep all to myself so it doesn’t get booked up” 

We look forward to meeting you on the farm
