After meeting at the farm, we will head straight out into the woods and fields to explore seasonal Scottish wild food. Our walk starts down the hedgerow, were we will look at common hedgerow plants that make excellent additions to the kitchen. Depending on the season, that may be sloes, blackberries, cherries, yarrow, hogweed, plaintain, rosehips, and many more. We will then go into the forest to hunt for edible mushrooms. We will cover only those mushrooms that are easily identified and with no close non-edible lookalikes. While in the woods, we will talk about where to forage and the laws around foraging in Scotland. We won't just cover food uses, on our walk, we will also cover some medicinal herbs and plants that are used for natural dyeing. We will head back to our farm (by way of the herb garden and polytunnel) where we will use our finds to make delicious wood fired sourdough pizzas to enjoy together.
We are Kat and Kevin, passionate smallholders who moved to our small farm about 5 years ago- adding dairy goats, sheep, a KuneKune pig, chickens, ducks, geese, cats, and a rather dapper peacock named Major Tom to the mix. We grow and make most of our own food and love to share that passion with other people. Kat is an author and photographer who specialises in craft and DIY how-to books, online courses and events. From the farm studio, she hosts popular workshops and weekend long retreats on crochet, sourdough bread making, cheese making, foraging and supper clubs.

Our type of farm is locally called a croft. It is a traditional type of small, self- sustaining tenant farm that has existed in communities like ours for hundreds of years in Scotland. We offer a glimpse into how these farms exist as part of a larger traditional hunting, farming and forestry estate and also what it takes to live the "good life" that many people dream of.
