Hunter Gatherer at Swinton Park

Hunter Gatherer

Saturday 16th August 2014

Spend a day in the parkland learning how to hunt with Birds of Prey and ferrets, forage for edible wild ingredients, and to build a fire and enjoy a delicious meal (using ingredients sourced from the day’s hunting and foraging) which is served in the deerhouse. The day is spent with our falconer Sophie Abbott and wild food expert Chris Bax, and promises to appeal to anyone with an interest in countryside skills and who enjoys getting back to nature!

£95 per person. The day starts at 9.15am and ends after lunch which is served at 2.15pm. The entire day is spent outdoors so warm outdoor clothing and footwear is advisable.

Late spring is the most beautiful time of year at Swinton Park, with the rhododendrons and azaleas in glorious, full bloom in the parkland and the first young vegetables coming up in our Walled Garden. Enjoy these to full advantage at our Garden Lunches and Garden Design Days, or our Estate Produce Lunches – starting a Celebration of Asparagus from 13th May. Our Deerhouse Lunches and Dinners are also running throughout the summer, including a new Barbecue Cook & Lunch course to polish up your grilling skills.
