Mary Bulfin - Forager

Mary Bulfin,I am a forager, chef, and lover of all good food nature has to offer. I collect wild foods, use them fresh and also preserve, make all kinds of treats from delicious elderflower delight to relishes, dried mushrooms, and wonderful liqueurs.

I also give guided foraging walks and workshops to small groups throughout the year. Limited places are available so  book early.

If you fancy going out to forage yourself, check out my what’s in season now page for tips.

Some of you have asked for recipes recently and I am very happy to answer requests and swap ideas.

Also, please feel free to send me photos of species you want identified!

I can be contacted on my mobile at 087 7418536, or by using the form on the contact page.

    Hi Mary
    Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed going foragaing with you duirng the Galway Food fesival. Although I am a complete novice at all things wild I feel that you have opened the door to some of the wonders that may be just on my goor step..wild garlic, wild leek, sorrel and of course fairy potatoes. Looking forward to going foraging for food with you again.!! All the best. Eilis

    Hi Mary, was part of the Birr GIY foraging walk yesterday. Really enjoyed it and look forward to trying out some of the ‘beech booze’ etc. Thanks for making it a great Saturday for my daughter and I.

    Hi Mary, Noreen and, I loved the foraging workshop on Tuesday. We have since been out searching in the hedgerows and have found loads of berries and some wild peas. No sign of hazelnuts yet, but Noreen is determined to discover them somewhere now she knows what she is looking for!
    Lunch was delicious, and the day was such good value for money with the two foraging trips.
    Thanks again.
    Chris and Noreen
