Sacrewell Heritage Farm and Country Centre, near Peterborough, is part of the William Scott Abbott Trust. It aims to keep rural and farming skills alive, and supports rare breeds. With its varied habitats, surrounded by organic farmland, it gives plenty of opportunity to explore the edible plants and fungi of the UK. This foraging course is easy to get to from Huntingdon, Grantham, Peterborough, Kettering, Corby, Northampton, Bedford, Stamford, Oakham, and Cambridge.

At Sacrewell Farm, you'll discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, how to avoid poisonous lookalikes, and hints on where to look.

When we meet up, we will go through laws and safety points of foraging before heading out to discover the wild food in the area.

​The course includes:



an overview of foraging laws and safety



exploration of the venue



introduction to a number of edible species 



instruction on how to tell edible species apart from poisonous lookalikes



tips on harvesting



information on where to find these species again



recipe ideas
