On the warm days of late September, the berries in the hedgerows around Flatford inspire the seasonal produce in the tea room. The team don’t have to go far either to find them, there’s often a hedgerow about to keel over under the weight of them just outside the door! Look out for them on your walk.
If you’re out walking along the Norfolk Coast Path, you’re likely to see blackberries growing in the wild. Remember, if you’re out foraging only take what you need, as nature will enjoy these autumn delights as much as you.
Did you know that the most flavoursome blackberries are those which have grown on plants in direct sunlight? Often the best blackberries will be found in difficult to reach positions where they have had the chance to fully ripen without being eaten by birds. Enjoy.
