Set in the spectacular surroundings of Cardross Estate, Port of Menteith, on 14th September, Scotland’s first wild food festival will provide a feast of wild food and the opportunity to try hands-on foraging workshops, wild walks, plant folklore and long table dinners. Whether you are a foraging novice or have been enjoying nature’s wild harvest for many years, there will be something to delight you.

The festival encourages people of all ages to step outdoors and discover local wild food. With fungi forages and tastings; artisan bread making and wilderness crafts; wild food stalls; and even the chance to learn fire lighting skills, this festival will appeal to nature lovers across Scotland.

The festival is part of a cross cultural project with LEADER areas in Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Scotland, each country running wild food festivals and sharing their experiences.

The Scottish festival began with Mark Williams of Galloway Wild Foods working with 12 local business participants on the Forth Valley & Lomond LEADER funded Wild Food Business Training Programme, to develop their foraging and wild food skills. These 12 inspiring businesses, along with other exciting activity and food providers, will be offering a range of unique events to introduce you to responsible foraging and wild food.

Some events and workshops within the festival are individually priced and ticketed, and should be booked via the event website. Other activities are on offer free with no booking required.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Wild Food Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
