Foraging Courses, Cornwall - run here at Court Farm in Philleigh.
We have a mixture of open pasture, ancient oak woodland and river estuary making it the perfect location to forage for edible plants and wild food.
The course is fun and informative and run by the hugely knowledgeable wild food experts from 7th Rise which is owned and run by Thom Hunt of River Cottage's Three Hungry Boys. After the foraging session you will be welcomed back to the cookery school kitchen to dine on a three course menu inspired by wild and foraged food. Our head chef George Pascoe will also be on hand to discuss cookery tips and do a couple of wild food demonstrations.
10.00-10:30 Welcome talk, orientation and safety briefing
During this session we will cover the aim of the course, toilet facilities, course area and safety briefing.
10.30-13.00 Foraging around Court Farm
Located in an ideal environment for a foraging course in Cornwall, the group will be taken on a foraging excursion around Court Farm, where you will explore many different environments - including hedgerow, pasture, woodland and tidal estuary. You will learn about the whole wild food larder dealing with herbs, roots, shoots, berries, flowers, nuts and fungus.
