About Totally Wild UK

Totally Wild UK’s main goal is to excite people with the amazing flavours to be found in the wild. Wild food is everywhere from the centre of London to the rural escapes of Cheshire, the deep woodlands of Scotland and coasts of Wales. Our team is constantly exploring and developing so we can bring these flavours to you in a range of different ways.

Whether you try Japanese Knotweed for the first time through our signature Knotweed and Ginger Jam, taste the amazing flavour of nettle crisps on an evening out in one of your favourite restaurants, watch one of our talks or demos at your local food festival, or join us on of our hands on in depth wild food foraging and cookery experiences.

We also want to support foragers, the art of foraging and take a responsible role in the sustainable collection of wild food, allowing nature to flourish as we interact with wild spaces. We also believe in safe foraging for our guests, we are rather strict on our in house risk assessments, training and development because we want you to have a truly fantastic and memorable experience.
