About Totally Wild UK

Our main goal is to excite people with the amazing flavours to be found in the wild.

On our Foraging Courses you’ll see that wild food is everywhere, when foraging in London you’ll find a unique range, compared to foraging in Cheshire with its relaxing countryside, when foraging in Scotland the deep woods offer bounty of mushrooms and foraging in Wales gives us amazing access to rural coastlines. Our team is constantly exploring and developing our range of foraging courses so we can make your learning experience as fun and valuable as possible.

Whether you try foraged foods for the first time through our signature foraged preserves, giving you a flavour of seasonal wild food at home, or taste the amazing flavour of foraged ingredients at an evening out in one of your favourite restaurants, watch one of our foraging 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 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.

Really impressed with the professionalism of your company. Well organised from start to finish with knowledgable guides and follow up at the end and a very good book too. I will definitely book again.

``Excellent Day``
We had a fabulous day out foraging with Megan in Barns Green. Along with perfect weather, we had all our questions answered and felt we left with a ton of knowledge.

I have already and would recommend for anyone to do this, a great day outdoors learning about nature.

Plus Megan cooked a fantastic meal in the woods at the end! 5*

Matthew HallForaging Course Guest

I’d like to thank Hazel and Totally Wild for organising such an interesting and inspiring event, which I enjoyed very much, as did my friend. This was a Christmas present from my son, and one which I will not forget.

The meal was amazing.

Anne LovellForaging Course Guest

“It has changed the way I interact with mother nature beyond recognition! Beforehand I would pick blackberries, but now I scan every bit of hedge and wood, and find myself working foraged ingredients into loads of my cooking. I've got some paniers for my bike to accommodate my haul on Sunday mornings! The rest of my household have long since given up listening to a word I say when I return with bundles of foliage.”

We’re here to help you learn more about foraging for plants, mushrooms & seaweeds and to develop your art of cooking with wild foods in a safe & superbly fun hands-on environment.
