  • Wild Food UK

    We like wild food. We forage it, harvest it, cook it, dry it, prepare it, store it and eat it. Foraging for us started with a genuine love of the great outdoors and a passion for food, combining both turns our walks in the woods and by the seaside into childlike treasure hunts. We like to share this almost forgotten knowledge and pass it on so that hopefully foraging in the UK can be kept alive for future generations. We hold foraging courses around the UK so that you should be able to find a course near you. We meet at a venue, often a pub, where we will discuss the do’s and don’ts of foraging followed by a gentle two and a half hour walk where we will identify and talk about wild foods and have a few wild food snacks along the way. At the end of the walk we will have a light wild food lunch and answer any questions about wild foods. A list and description of everything we found will then be sent to you to remind you of the various wild plants and mushrooms we discovered on the walk.
