How to get started foraging fruit
Foraging has to be the most eco-friendly, no waste way to source your summer fruits.
All those hedges full of juicy blackberries and patches of wild raspberries come into their own in the second half of summer and of course anything you find in the wild, doesn’t come in pesky plastic.
Alternatively look out for farm shops or pick your own farms near you. Farming UK has this handy map of farm shops across the UK.
