Harts Barn Cookery School hosts Forage and Feast workshops, with participants taken out into the surrounding hedgerows, woods and fields to fill a basket with a bounty of nuts, berries and mushrooms before returning to the school to create a feast of infused tea, bread, savoury dishes and something sweet to finish off with.

Autumnal Foraging Breaks and Leaf Peepers Fizz Cocktail - Tudor Farmhouse

Boutique hotel Tudor Farmhouse is offering guided group foraging courses, heading off the beaten track to search for wild ingredients before foodie finds are handed over to the hotel’s head chef, who will use them to create a gourmet lunch.
