ABOUT THE COURSE

Rush Farm is a community owned organic mixed farm, well positioned in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. From butterflies to Roe deer, Rush Farm is home to a plethora of cherished native wildlife.
The Bow Brook babbles along the northern boundary, while the south of the farm is fringed by 20 acres of woodland. Established hedgerows, species rich grassland and ancient pasture ensures that our courses here will cover a wide variety of plants and mushrooms throughout the year.

Our courses begin with a short introduction to Wild Food UK, what to expect from your day and a brief of the general countryside codes, including our Foraging Code.

Heading off at a leisurely pace around the grounds, your instructor will teach you how to safely identify the different species of edible and poisonous plants and mushrooms that you discover.
This exploration will take about 2.5hrs, during which we’ll take a break for a homemade refreshment, such as our warming Hogweed & Wild Garlic soup or Elderflower Champagne!

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty Wild Food meal. This will include a selection of foraged homemade treats created by your instructor, and a dish made with what we have collected during the walk.
All of our food is seasonal, so what you are served depends on what is growing at that time of year. In Spring we will be making use of the fresh wild greens and in Autumn, the array of tasty wild mushrooms that the venue has to offer.

You will receive a comprehensive set of Wild Food UK ‘course notes’ a few days after your course. This email will contain links and articles relating to the plants and mushrooms we discovered, or discussed during the day.
