Hands-on Introduction to Foraging
We have partnered with our friends at Wild Food UK to bring you foraging workshops right here on the farm. Marlow recently took Raymond Blanc foraging in our neck of the woods! Lots of great foraging spots on the farm. These include an ancient woodland, streams, Farmland and Common with amazing views.
Meet in the farm courtyard. The course starts here with a short introduction on what to look for, our foraging code and a brief of the Countryside Act, where it relates to foraging.
We will then set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the grounds, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup, elderflower champagne or fruit leathers.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. All of our food is seasonal so what we make depends on recent weather and what is around at that time of year. In spring we will be making use of the wild shoots and in autumn the array of tasty wild mushrooms that the area has to offer.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt. To book https://www.wildfooduk.com/foraging-trips/herefordshire-drovers-rest-foraging-courses/
