Our Wild and Foraged courses at our Cookery School are always popular at the farm, but never more so than in springtime. To the trained eye, our grassy banks and woodlands offer the opening of a whole new larder of ingredients, and to the foodies who join us, a whole array of new and inventive dishes to be created.

We were therefore so thrilled to welcome photographer, writer and blogger Catherine Frawley to our latest Wild & Foraged course and wanted to share with you some of her beautiful photos from the day. You can read more about Catherine’s day with us via 91 Magazine here.
