Boschendal is blessed with a variety of habitats that are conducive to the growth of wild mushrooms. As part of our day foraging, we will be joined by avid mushroom forager Justin Williams to seek out these treasures from the forest. Justin’s passion for fungi is infectious, his approachable nature and knowledge provide an easy learning experience. Every year Boschendal and Justin collaborate for a mushroom-themed day where guests are treated to guided forages and delicious mushroom-based meals. 

The mushroom hunt will begin with an educational talk led by Justin about mushroom identification and foraging, followed by a trip to the poplar forest and then to the old oak trees, where the prospect of a perfect porcini may be just around the next corner. End off the hunt with a three-course set menu at the Werf Restaurant, where Executive Chef Christiaan Campbell will use only the best in natural produce and locally sourced ingredients.

Mushroom foraging, also known as "the silent hunt," is a highly satisfying pastime, and guests will leave with the knowledge about how to safely pick their own mushrooms for the table.
