Experience TripAdvisor's #1 Foraging Activity in the US

Where else on the planet can you walk in the woods, be entertained, and find a five-star meal coming out of the earth?

guest review

Ready to go wild? Experience what brings millions to Asheville every year — the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the vibrant food scene — with our unique forage-to-table tours.

We’ve been taking people “out to eat” for nearly 25 years. Led by expert guides, you’ll discover at least a dozen wild edibles, including ones you might find in your own backyard: greens, berries, mushrooms, flowers, roots, nuts… we never know what we might find! We gather a few and cook some up for a tasting. You can keep your foraged finds or have them crafted into an appetizer at an award-winning Asheville restaurant.

For a truly unique, 100% Asheville experience, join us off the eaten path. Tours average 10 participants and are family-friendly and suitable for all ages and abilities. Our introductory e-book is included, and all equipment is provided. Discover how fun, safe, easy, and delicious foraging can be!

Our Guides

Our guides are all experts in the field, including a former forager for over 75 restaurants, a naturopathic doctor, a board member of the North American Fruit Explorers, and an ethnobotanist with a master’s in Appalachian studies. For them, foraging is a way of life. With passion and precision, they make foraging safe and fun.

“With Hannelore’s help, we were able to literally get a taste of the connection people can experience with nature.”

A Lovely Morning with Hannelore, TripAdvisor

“Our guide Dimitri was a charm – fully knowledgeable, a caring teacher, funny, careful and a good singer – what could be better.”

We had a wonderful adventure from morning to night, TripAdvisor

“Jillian was as knowledgeable as she was accommodating to our rambunctious 4 year old. She even got him to try some wood sorrel which is incredible since he’s such a fussy eater.”

One of best adventures we’ve had in the entire country, TripAdvisor

“Justin was informative, engaged, and obviously very passionate and knowledgeable, which in turn made us more excited.”

A great way to reframe how you experience nature, TripAdvisor

“Natalie’s enthusiasm is contagious and her knowledge of local flora is incomparable… The most remarkable and memorable part of our experience was the fact that, against all odds, Natalie found my wife’s keys (which accidentally fell out of her pocket somewhere during our 2+ hour walk/hike) in deep leaves within a swale near the top of a mountain!! Now that’s one amazing forager :)”

Knowledge, Enthusiasm, and the best darned foraging trip ever!, TripAdvisor

Alan is not only an expert at identifying plants & fungi; he is also a poet/singer/actor with hilarious stories conveying important messages. Just hanging out with him is worth the price of the ticket.”

Great foraging tour

The foraged items can be taken to local restaurants where they cook a plate so delicious I couldn't believe it came from what I'd always considered weeds…

A Great Foodie Tour at Asheville's Omni Grove Park Inn

We've wanted to take one of these tours for years and absolutely loved it. The guide and tour were interesting and tasty. We can't wait to return to Asheville and take the longer tour! Highly-recommended!

Informative and enjoyable

I booked the Wild Food Stroll with my 2 kids, and they LOVED it. Our guide was knowledgeable and had fun activities for kids (eat leaves from a tree like a giraffe). My kids came home and have enjoyed pointing out the edibles in our yard...and eating them too!

Great Experience!

Our family ranging from 4 to 72 years old all had a blast. The tour was very informative and interactive. We all got to enjoy the outdoors while tasting what the wilderness was offering that day. Highly recommend for an activity that is not only different, but a lot of fun.

Fun morning adventure

We had a great time strolling around with Becky. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot and she created some excitement for us to forage around our own area when we returned home. Thank you.
