Foraging on the Farm
What a better way to start the season than with our wild foraging walks on our farm in Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. Learn all about the wonderful wild food in the hedgerows and fields with professional forager, Dermot (Forage Ireland) and our own herbalist, Becky Cole who shares wild remedies during the walk too. After the foraging walk there’s a demo using some of the foraged ingredients.
These events run every season here at Broughgammon Farm. We are located between Ballycastle and Bushmills on the north coast of Northern Ireland.
