Bruern Farms

Summer Foraging Walk Saturday August 17th, 9-11:30 am




Join forager and community herbalist Leslie Astor of Fifield Road Apothecary for a two hour long foraging walk around the Bruern estate, and learn to identify, harvest and work with local edible and medicinal seasonal plants. These walks are both relaxed and highly informative, and all are welcome, including children and dogs on leads.

All groups meet at the Bruern Farms Shop. After the walk, we convene in the shop once again to sample wildcrafted food and medicines made with some of the plants seen and discussed on that day's walk. Useful handouts, including information on individual plants seen and a recipe or two, are emailed to all participants afterwards.

Pricing is £25 per person for adults, £10 for children 12 and under. 

Private group bookings are available, and can be arranged by emailing us at
