Our signature experience involves both lookin’ and cookin’. Expert guides lead go-getters on a woodland shopping spree, gathering wild mushrooms, plants, and other “extreme cuisine.”
After our wild gooseberry chase, it’s finders, eaters as we cook up a sampling of our catch of the day. Then it’s Survivor meets Iron Chef as your group — or one of our six partner restaurants — transforms the rest of your quarry into find dining. Wild mushroom pizza, daylily tamales, sassafras root beer, wisteria ice cream… it all depends on what we find.
This is the only year-round, u-pick, forage-to-table experience in North America. The same goes for our forage-to-bar offering. And what better way to get a true taste of a place, to really “take in the landscape?”
Our group offerings have been featured in Successful Meetings, Meetings Today, Meetings & Conventions, The Meeting Professional, Collaborate, Corporate & Incentive Travel, Going on Faith, Lodging, Hotelier International, and more.
Our tours are available daily and are suitable for all ages and ability levels. Intro e-book is included and all equipment is provided.
We can accommodate groups of all sizes. If necessary, we can divide the group into teams of typically ten to fifteen participants and assign one of our guides to each group.
Prices vary with the program and the size of the group. We have packages with a variety of Asheville accommodations including Aloft Hotel. We also have group offerings at Old Edwards Inn, The Greenbrier, and elsewhere by arrangement. For more information, contact us.
An incredible immersive experience that puts you in touch with nature in a meaningful way — foraging for dinner. Our guide was knowledgeable, engaging, passionate, and caring. It was a truly authentic experience.
