ABOUT THE COURSE

Little Seed Field is a beautiful, picturesque Glamping site and working farm 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, making it a perfect place to come and learn about foraging for wild tasty edibles.

Little Seed Field is 1 of only 18 Dark Sky Reserves in the world. If you find yourself staying over in one of the huts, we recommend getting your telescope out and doing a little star-gazing!

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 area 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.

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
