It’s a joyous thing to go out into the fields and woods and come back with a basket of edible goodies, whether those are fungal or fruity! We get such a lot out of the time we spend in the forests picking, and are always delighted when people come out on forays with us to learn more about mushroom identification so they can then go out on their own. Without exception, all who have forayed with us over the years have been lovely, enthusiastic and interesting people, a pleasure to spend time with.
This season’s forays in the UK are now all fully booked and have proven to be so popular we have a waiting list. At this time of year we spend an equal amount of time in West Sweden where we pick the mushrooms we dry to sell, and take people out on forays there too. We often invite British forayers to come and pick with us in beautiful Bohuslän, and this year one of our Swedish guests expressed a desire to come over to our UK base near Manchester. We do like to do our bit for mushroom tourism between the UK and Scandinavia! There are still places available on our two forays on the lovely island of Orust, just north of Gothenburg, this coming weekend, 3 and 4 October. We’re enjoying a fantastic Brit summer as they say here, with temperatures in the late teens, so it’s a great time to visit this beautiful part of the world. Happy foraging everyone!
