Hi there I have just had a great afternoons walk looking for new places to forage for ingredients to make flavoured gin and vodka and wine. Now i think i have happened upon a great find. Lots and lots of raspberries and blackberries. They are quite close to a pick your own farm so i guess the local birds have been helping me. Roll on picking time.

Welcome to the forum Theron,
Hope you enjoy it as much as we all do.  You will find lots of Fiona's recipes & tips very useful. Good luck with your foraging.

i dont think there will be much foraging this year my raspberries look to be taking over ,brambles at the bottom of the garden , hazel nut bushes first crop if im lucky and the squirrels dont beat me , the only think im without is sloes but theres tons locally . Living in the back of beyond does have its advantages sometimes
