Our one day foraging for food experience will be hosted by Richard Mawby and includes foraging and cooking experience, light lunch served with local wine. Scroll down for full details. Space is limited so book now.
Richard will be joining us back at the estate for another informative, fun and exciting experience of foraging in the wild.
Wander through the vineyard as Richard points out all the edible plants which could make a healthy addition to your diet. You’ll be encouraged to enjoy the pure and natural flavours of freshly harvested plants as Richard introduces unique flavours you can weave into your meals. By the end of the session, you should be able to confidently identify several edible wild plants and will go home with lots of ideas to try in your own kitchen. You will also get the chance to get hands-on with some of the plants you have foraged and learn how to prepare and made some great dishes.

Based in Northampton, Richard follows a primal ideal, reconnecting with nature and thriving on locally sourced wild animal products, foraged plants and raw goat’s milk. He explains: “Foraging is a great way to re-learn the connection we once had with the wild, to be at one with your surroundings, experience nature and to re-tune with your instincts. This workshop is a practical, hands-on approach to dining from nature’s pantry and the vineyard couldn’t be a more perfect location.”
