Connecting and Collaborating

We love the way that the farm brings people together. 

We are lucky to have met some local Nottingham people and business over the last couple of years and would like you to get to know them too! 

The Nottingham Forager

Hi there I’m Lucy, otherwise known as The Nottingham Forager. I’m passionate about wild food in all its forms and love engaging with others, passing the knowledge of our native plants along.

 
Last year, after connecting on social media, I came to the farm to conduct a foraging survey and never left! What I found was not only rich, fertile and productive foraging grounds but also a farm team working in harmony with nature and encouraging diversity. Oh... and did I mention the Alpacas!?


We have some fantastic workshops, walks and talks lined up for the coming year and I can’t wait to show of the fungi, flora and fauna of the site.
My
online store stocks many farm items as well as foraging supplies and more. 


Look out for mushroom hunting, wild tea making, hawthorn ketchup, woodland bathing and yoga plus loads more coming up soon.
See you at the farm!
