Job description

Forager is one of the most innovative food businesses trading in the UK today. We supply some of Britain's top restaurants with over 150 different wild ingredients sourced from the British Isles. We are pioneering the use of food plants which have been either under used or completely overlooked in the recent past. These wild plants are highly nutritious and are produced in the most sustainable way possible since they require no inputs of any kind beyond those supplied by the weather and the landscape.

There are several edible wild plants which do not grow abundantly in our area; if we could we would like to offer them to our customers. If you can find any of these plants in abundance we can negotiate a price and arrange to have whatever you can pick collected and brought here.

Here are some of the plants we are after: blinks Montia Fontana (common in Scotland and Wales), sweet woodruff Galium ororatum, sweet cicely Myrrhis odorata (common in North of England and South of Scotland), bistort Polygonum bistorta (common in the North of England), bilberries Vaccinium myrtillus (common on heaths and moors throughout), cowberry Vaccinium vitis-idaea (common in Scotland), dewberry Rubus caesus, Good-king-Henry Chenopodium bonus-henricus, Scots lovage Ligusticum scoticum (found rocky coastal areas of Scotland), sweet flag Acorus calumus, Sitka spruce (shoots) Picea sitchensis (common in plantations in Scotland), sneezewort Achillea ptarmica, field pennycress Thlapsi arvensis, orpine Sedum fabaria, lambs lettuce or common cornsalad Valerianella locusta (common in parts of Cornwall).
