We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us. We have designed our foraging and wild food adventures to get you close to nature and to let us guide you through what makes this area of Dorset so special and unique.

Foraging is the best way to get outside, in your urban or rural environment, to open your eyes and to seek out the wild food that is growing around you that you can access for free. It’s a way to make a connection between your environment and to the food on your plate; to make nature into a treasure hunt for the tummy.
With a focus on connecting people to nature, we create immersive experiences that connect clients to the great outdoors through wild food and adventure. We are passionate about foraging and are committed to sharing a real taste of Dorset on our experiences. From foraging along the seashore to scouring the hedgerows in the woods, using bushcraft skills to turn the foraged finds into a feast we have heaps of wild adventure offerings.
Natures larder is forever changing, spring time brings us new shoots, like wild garlic, alexanders and cleansing cleavers, in summer we are treated with edible blooms and more gorgeous green goodies and sea vegetables. Autumn delivers nourishing nuts and a bounty of berries. Even in winter you can still forage and find yourself wild foods to eat. Best of all we have an abundance of edible seaweeds all year round so the larder is never empty.
When it comes to foraging, seeing people first recognising that glorious relationship between the outdoors and what they eat is always a special moment. It’s exciting! Donning your wellies and grabbing your basket and exploring the hedgerows and seashore is like a treasure hunt of the natural kind. Being able to eat what you have found in this adventurous way is an added bonus – it becomes about the journey.
Join us in Studland and the surrounding Dorset countryside to learn your wild foods. We host foraging walks and courses and wild food events that involve cooking up your foraged ingredients alfresco or why not take a seat at one of our seasonal forage and feast experiences where you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour and natures larder, with a cocktail to hand!
Our spot on the Jurrassic coast in Dorset is a place of beauty and bounty, perfect for foraging. A long sandy peninsula with a heavenly harbour where we explore the salt marshes on one side and a golden stretch of sandy shore on the other with woodland in between, there is certainly no shortage of nature to explore. If you want to try out some of these green goodies have a look at our blog where we share foraging tips and recipes.
It is here that the majority of our foraging courses run but we do venture out further for some of our events and we can happily bring Fore to you to run bespoke days for your group or corporate event closer to home if you are looking to explore your own patch with us in tow.
We also work with brands to create content such as Talisker Whisky and La Mer and we are also available for filming and previously featured on BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky and National Geographic.

THANKQ so very much for Fridays Feast it was quite simply a beautiful evening. The food was tasty and expertly BBQ'd(nice jobs boys!) and as for the magical table setting and lighting I positively felt I was transported though a beach Narnia into a land Nurtured via Neptune and Nature.
