Our Tours

Choose your experience

We are based in Asheville, North Carolina, an acclaimed destination in the heart of the Southern Appalachians. With over 300 wild edibles, our area is the second richest temperate ecosystem on Earth- come see what wild foods grow all over the mountains, and often right in your own yard. 

On our tours, you will get a chance to learn about, gather, and taste the truly local foods of our region. Our expert guides lead you through fields and woods on easy walks that are fun, eye-opening, informative, and delicious! After your tour, you can opt to have some of Asheville’s best chefs turn your foraged finds into a gourmet appetizer.
