Wild Food Foraging Tours, Asheville

The company offers two tours year-round: a 3-hour foraging tour and a 1.5-hour wild food stroll. On the foraging tour, you gather mushrooms and other wild edibles, then you can either learn to cook your catch of the day yourself (think “Survivor meets Iron Chef”) or you can bring it to one of six local restaurants and have it transformed into one or more appetizers to accompany your meal at no extra charge. Wild mushroom pizza, daylily tamales, sassafras root beer, wisteria ice cream… it all depends on what you find. Foraging tours take place at a variety of natural areas within 35 minutes of Asheville.
