Foraging tips

When foraging for wild herbs, berries or any other wild foods it is best to stay away from busy roads, railway tracks, dog walker’s paths, etc as you wouldn’t want to pick more than just a free range product!

It is also important to be sensible about what to pick.
The golden rule is – if you are not sure, don’t put it in your basket.

It is especially true for mushrooms as it is sometimes easy to mistake a really poisonous mushroom for a perfectly edible one!
