For the past fifteen years our Forage and Feast Events have served to bring participants a taste of the wild, at the same time promoting local businesses who team with us to create a wonderful culinary experience. In 2017 Wine and Dine Magazine (Singapore) featured Puck's Plenty's Forage and Feast alongside such world famous restaurants as Noma (Denmark), Parallel 37(San Francisco) and the Native Restaurant (Britain).

Our Forage and Feast Events are listed by Marriott International as one of the "Top 10 Adventures to Have this Summer" while Travel and Leisure Magazine included Puck's Plenty as one of the top foraging spots in the world.
