For millennia, people have headed to the sea in summer to relax and feast. Come on a barefoot forage over the rockpools of Carswell Farm’s fabulous beach and learn to sustainably harvest and use mineral rich seaweeds plus a variety of hedgerow and meadow summer wild edibles. In Carswell’s Field Kitchen we’ll taste, prepare, cook and preserve our harvest and enjoy a deeply nourishing summer feast of plants from sea and shore.  Be prepared for one steep climb with steep steps to the beach, clambering over rockpools and fabulous views!

Please bring suitable footwear for walking across fields, coast paths and rockpools. 

Due to the nature of Carswell Farm, this forage isn’t suitable for anyone with mobility impairment and no dogs.

Wednesday 5th July

12pm – 4pm

£50 per person (Max 10 adults, no children)

Words by Trudy Turrell

“I have been fascinated by wild foods for most of my life. Working in conservation in South Devon for 20 years gave me the privilege to explore the hidden valleys, coastline, estuaries and woodlands and experience nature daily at first hand. I love to use wild food in favourite recipes and explore ways of preserving it. Sharing knowledge and good food together is a fabulous way to spend time in nature. I have led foraging events for the National Trust, South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Deer Wood Trust, Ackerll’s Rewilding Project and for families and celebrations. I have led forages at Carswell Farm for Newton Ferrers Primary School for several years. Now, thanks to the owners, I have the chance to share the wild riches of over a thousand acres of carefully managed organic land and seashore with you. “
