Locally brewed craft beer from Black Swan Brewery and wines from Niagara are also included.

Mother's Day Foraging

May 13th

SOLD OUT.



What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than an outing into the forest collecting delicious, nutritious fiddleheads. Imagine them sauteed in butter and garlic then spread over a freshly cooked salmon. Season with a bit of lemon and you are ready for a feast. The recipes for these delicacies are numerous and we'll be handing out a few along the trails. Bring a basket, a bag or whatever and get set to collect your bounty that will also include wild leeks, day lily shoots, garlic mustard and more. It all takes place only 20 minutes outside of Stratford.

There's a reason Travel and Leisure Magazine listed Puck's Plenty as one of the top foraging spots in the world. Find out why!

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person


May 19th

SOLD OUT



We're off to the Kitchener-Waterloo area for what we hope will be a productive hunt for morels. These highly sought after fungi top the charts for taste which is why they are cherished worldwide. Join us on the trails as we also search for wild watercress, wild ginger, pheasant back mushrooms and more.

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: To be determined
Cost: $35.00/person


May 20th

SOLD OUT.



Ah, the Stinging Nettle. We've got lots of stories on this plant in our bag to say the least. Such as the time a few years back when one of our particpants, after harvesting and sampling Trout Lilies, figured as long as it was edible you could taste it, cooked or raw. So he grabbed a stem of nettle, put it in his mouth and swallowed. Not a pleasant sight as we watched while the tingling from mouth to throat to whatever ran its course. But the fact is that nettles are one of the heathiest plants you can consume . . . . as long as they're cooked first. Chocked full of iron these plants make wonderfully healty and delicous soups, pestos, tea and beer. That's right, Nettle Beer! Luckily for us they grow right alongside an abudnance of fiddleheads and burdock. So bring your bags, baskets and gloves and join us as we make our way into a field of Nature's Bounty.

Victoria Day Foraging

May 21st

SOLD OUT.



It's Victoria Day and we're traveling out around the Hullet Marsh area, searching spectacular trails for Morel Mushrooms. We can't say enough about these mushrooms but they are truly fit for a queen. Unfortunately they are around for just a short time but the entire experience is well worth the wait.

May is a wonderful month to walk in the forest and take in Nature's Bounty.

All of this before we return to Stratford Tea Leaves for what promises to be an exciting meal from the wild that will include baguettes from The Downie Street Bakehouse alongside Gouda Nettle from Mountain Oak Cheese.

May 27th

SOLD OUT.



One of the first edible mushrooms to appear in the Spring is the Pheasant Back, also known as Dryad's Saddle. Harvested when young, their taste resembles a mild, sweet cucumber. These fungi can be eaten raw or sauteed. Moreover, they can be dried and round into a powder for spicy seasoning. Along with these enticing fungi we will be harvesting wild leeks, trout lily leaves, garlic mustard, and more.

Here's a couple of reviews from Yelp that might prove helpful.

We're hoping to see you on the trails.

Start time: 10:00 am
