Free food from nature's larder

Foraging has seen a huge rise in popularity over the last couple of years. This has been boosted by Jimmy Doherty and his friends as they foraged for their supper on Jimmy's Forest

So if you thought there was no such thing as a free lunch, think again! UK woodland has plenty to offer with exciting ingredients for soups, sauces, desserts and tipples found in abundance. With rising prices in the supermarkets and wider awareness of wild food health benefits, you might just like to give foraging a try.


Great new recipes to try

With blackberries ripening and elderberries coming up soon, there's no better reason to get out into the woods now and get stuck in to these new recipes. We've even got a new guide to help you forage for chestnuts safely.

Responsible Foraging

Remember that nature's larder should never be stripped bare so please do leave some fruits of the forest behind for the wildlife and to ensure a bumper crop again next year.
