Forage Fine Foods is a little food business set on top of a hill in the gorgeous Black Mountains. From our kitchen window we look out mountains that are covered in heather, wild thyme and wild blueberries, lanes billowing with meadowsweet, hogweed and cherry blossom. Meadows running riot with sorrel, clover and cleavers, and hedgerows that are full of honeysuckle, hawthorn, elder and hazel. It's almost impossible to not find something to eat around here & for thousands of years the good people of this wonderful land have picked, eaten and thrived on the inspirational larder that sits outside of every ones front doors.
We're on a bit of a mission to rekindle a love affair with the taste of the wild, and have turned the flavours we love the most into a range of seasonings and condiments we think will win your hearts.
Once you've tried our wares, you might want to start gathering the food that grows around you - Liz Knight, Forage's founder runs courses designed to help you take your first steps into the wild.
Whether you eat our finds, join us on a wild food adventure, or are simply inspired by our wares to get out yourself and start gathering, enjoy your foraging journey.

Anybody can enjoy the increasingly popular back-to-nature activity of foraging. In some countries these plants are now forgotten as food, but in others they are still celebrated for their value as nutritious, delicious ingredients and cooking with wild plants is increasingly being adopted by mainstream restaurants.
Journeying through 50 globally populated edible plants, Forage explores the culture and history of our wild food. Stunning botanical illustrations by artist Rachel Pedder-Smith accompany each plant, alongside recipes inspired by the regions of the world where they are most celebrated.
