What happens during the foraging tour?
During each event, we provide a guided tour in which a variety of foraged food is made available. During the tour it is imperative you remain with the course leader at all times and follow her/his instruction. It is within your own choice as to whether or not you wish to eat the food presented to you and you alone take liability for your own well being.
When foraging for wild food, you must be able to correctly identify what you are picking, otherwise you should not eat it. Never eat any wild food without multiple sources of positive identification. SOME WILD PLANTS AND MUSHROOMS IN THE UK ARE DEADLY POISONOUS. Any consumption during a foraging tour we provide is made at your own risk.
All foods discussed are either previously recorded as edible or have been eaten by the course leader. Consumption of wild foods can, however, cause an allergic reaction in certain individuals; we advise against any guests who are pregnant or who have known allergies from trying any ingredients during our foraging tour and take no liability on these occasions. For anyone else wishing to sample small amounts of new wild foods on first consumption there’s always the possibility of freak reaction which has no grounding or basis on the persons common bodily reactions to food. For example, people should avoid sorrel if they have known allergies any member of the Polygonaceae family. We and our associated practitioners take no liability on these occasions.
Although our guided foraged tour is taught by highly experienced & capable leaders, it is not intended that any instruction provided to you while on a tour will in any way qualify you to instruct any third party & no warranty is made to that effect.

We want Our guests to enjoy themselves and experience new and flavourful food choices; however, We venture to do this safely and healthily. If You have any allergies, We ask that You inform us at the time of booking so that We can accommodate you.
