Our Tours

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 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 twenty-five years. Led by expert guides, you’ll meet 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! Then you’ll gather your goodies for a short cooking lesson and tasting. After the tour, you can take your harvest home or to one of Asheville’s top restaurants, where they’ll transform it into a wild appetizer, with lunch or dinner, for free.

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

For them, foraging is a way of life. With passion and precision, they make foraging safe and fun.
