The wild food foraging tours at No Taste Like Home are conducted by highly skilled tour guides and professional wild crafters who are qualified in wild food identification and processing. All tours start with a demo on the basics of safe foraging.
· Mini-Tours - Mini-tours are 1.5-hour wild food foraging tours conducted at the Omni Grove Park Inn. The tour introduces the participants to at least half a dozen wild foods and also offers a dinner at the Omni's Sunset View Restaurant with a free appetizer made from one of the wild foods introduced during the tour. Charges are $40 per adult and $15 per child.
· Regular Tour - Regular tours are 3 hours of wild food foraging and are conducted at different locations within a 20 to 40-minute radius of downtown Asheville. The tour also focuses on 12 to 15 types of wild plants and mushrooms during the mushroom season. A sampling of the gathered food will be cooked up by participants at the end of the tour. Participants can even choose to take their wild finds to one of six partner restaurants to get it cooked in an appetizer – free of charge. Tours are $75 per adult and $30 per child.
· Private Tours - Private tours are three-hour foraging activities that can be tailored to the group's interests, such as finding medicinal plants or including more hiking during the tour. Prices start from $450 for six adults and $75 for each additional adult.
The company also offers year-round full-length private tours upon request, which include a visit to the waterfall, gathering root beer ingredients, and even finding chaga mushrooms. These private tours focus on 12 to 15 edibles found in the wild. Photo: No Taste Like Home
