We’re very pleased to be back at Newton Farm Shop this autumn for another foraging walk. Learn the basics of how to forage, what you might find in your local park and what to avoid.

Delighted to be back this year at Keynsham’s popular, and our most local, market - the Wellsway Artisan & Craft Market. Always on Remembrance Sunday, it’s a great place to stop off after you’ve been to Keynsham Park for the Memorial Service. With 90 producers under 2 roofs, there’s everything there for a bit of early Christmas Shopping.
I know! We don’t normally do mid year markets - but we’ve been hearing lots of great things about the Bristol Harbourside market. So we’re around for a few weeks at the beginning of summer with our usual stock - but also some one-off goodies like Quince Jelly, Raspberry and Blackcurrant and our ever popular mini jars.
Learn to forage without fear. We’re leading a walk and talk on wild food - and inedibles - in conjunction with Newton Farm Shop, Bath.

We're joining forces with the fabulous bakers Thoughtful Bakery and fine cheese purveyors Paxton and Whitfield Cheesemonger for a one off tasting event at the bakery. They'll be bread and cheese of course - and our liqueurs for sampling too. Including our new liqueur - Damson. Free to attend, just pop along.
13th October - as part of The Great Bath Feast we'll be joining with Newton Farmshop, Bath, to run a foraging course. Expect around 1 hour walk around their gorgeous Duchy Farm before heading back to the Farmshop for afternoon tea. We'll identify edible and non-edible greens and berries. Booking (directly with the farmshop) is essential as this is always a popular course https://www.newtonfarmfoods.co.uk/
Our next event we return to http://www.tasteoftimsbury.co.uk 22nd September 10am - 4pm. We don't have a stall that day due to other commitments, but we'll be running a free foraging course. A short stroll around the fields will show you wild food on your doorstep. No need to book, just turn up.
We were delighted to be invited to cook a 3 course meal at Temple Street Canteen, Keynsham in May - using foraged ingredients. https://www.facebook.com/templestreetcanteen/
We picked the finest ingredients from the surrounding countryside. From this we made a foraged leaf salad with goats cheese, rosehip jelly, dandelion jelly and wild garlic oil. Followed by a dandelion and wild garlic quiche or slow cooked beef and dandelion root stew, served with nettle mash and hogweed shoots. Frozen wild damsons made their way into a warming cake served with Japanese Knotweed whipped cream.
Here are some pictures from the evening. We'll keep you posted on the next meal - but if you really don't want to miss out, you can sign up for our newsletter (sporadic, informative and always pretty).
