We were admittedly nervous about the final results of our nettle beer. There was much tweaking over the recipe the past several weeks but our last batch was exactly what we wanted. A light colour and a gentle fizz. What better drink to walk around inside a magnificent tent on a hot summer's afternoon.

Last week we appeared on Global News' Morning Show. We do need to qualify something as you watch the broadcast. Because of scheduling, the beer was not finished it's bottling process so the colour is much darker (let's face it, the colour is very odd)than what it should be.



Our foraging treks take place across beautiful woodland trails just minutes from Stratford, Ontario with the purpose of educating participants in the art of identifying wild edibles and mushrooms, prudent harvesting and, in the end, appreciating their wonderful taste and health benefits.

Outings are available most weekends and weekdays through mid November.

Cost: $30 per person.

Unless otherwise noted, foraging treks are limited to 15 participants.
