The farm itself is just beautiful, and they have thoughtfully made it a really fun place for children. Here’s a welly-toss station.
After our Fungi Foray, and picking up a copy of the wonderful little guide, Food for Free, I have been examining the ground very closely for edibles. I am fairly certain that we were in the midst of a very large population of edible boletus. I think we found some Larch Boletus and Boletus Gertrudiae. We did not bring any home, alas. No one else was picking, and I guess I am still a little nervous about eating mushrooms without the approval of an expert. I do kind of regret it, though! I took lots of pictures of the fungi we found, so I could look them all up and confirm later. The chickens did seem to be enjoying the bounty, though.
Have you been to a local farm lately?
