Please note classes are non-refundable and will take place come rain or shine. Over 18’s only.

Trapper: Crayfishing

Crayfish are a non-native invasive species in serious need of being captured, removed and eaten. So invasive they are, it is actually illegal to return one if you get it out the water. Good thing they’re big and tasty! Join the HGC team at a secret lake for a session of hauling out fresh Crayfish followed by a good ol’ fashioned crayfish boil with wild dips, sides and ice cold refreshing Micheladas.

Gatherer: Foraging

In and around the woods, fields and lakes of Cornbury Park, learn about the edible wild plants in season during high summer. Identify, taste and harvest plants to take back to the kitchen and use in the canapés and cocktails. 

Hunter: Deer Butchery

In HGC’s woodland field kitchen, learn about the deer which have been shot on site, the ethics and process of deer stalking, followed by hands on deer butchery from skinning to taking apart various cuts ready for the table.
