ABOUT THE COURSE

Little Seed Field is a beautiful picturesque dairy farm and Glamping site in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It sits within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Surrounded by fields, meadows, coppices of woodland and ponds, this is the perfect place to come and learn about foraging for wild tasty edibles.  This course location boasts natural beauty, sweeping horizons, uninterrupted views and wildlife. 

Little Seed Field is also located in 1 of just 18 Dark Sky Reserves in the world. If you find yourself staying over in the huts, then we recommend getting your telescope out and looking up at the 2000 plus stars. 

Foraging Courses

We will meet in the courtyard. 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.

Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the grounds, teaching you how to identify the different 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.

After the walk we will end the day with 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 wild shoots and in autumn the array of tasty wild mushrooms that the area has to offer.

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.

Little Seed Field has 7 luxury Glamping huts with acres of land to roam and re connect with nature, The site offers something for everyone: romantic retreats, exploring for adventurers and memory making for families. This is the perfect place to stay if you wish to make a weekend of it. Head over to their website to book a stay. www.yorkshiredalesglamping.co.uk
