Cambridgeshire, Huntingdon Foraging Courses
AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
ABOUT THE COURSE
The Brampton Mill is a beautiful riverside pub along the River Great Ouse. Located just off the A14 near Huntingdon, it can be easily reached from Cambridge, Bedford, Kettering and Peterborough.
We will meet at the Brampton Mill. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for, our foraging code and a brief of the Countryside Act, where it relates to foraging. Drinks are available from the pub.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the area and along the riverside, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous 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.
Then it’s back to the pub for 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 fresh wild greens and in summer the wild flowers, fruits and mushrooms.
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.
