Elderflower Picking Health & Safety

How to get involved

We recommend some good walking shoes and long trousers to protect yourself from nettles.  Then just grab a good-sized, reusable bag and head for the hedgerows.

Respect the land

Of course, we only encourage you to pick from private land, where permission has been obtained both for them to be there and to pick the elderflowers.

Please follow the countryside code when picking which can be found here.

We give back to nature

Please trust that with our Countryside Stewardship membership and modern farming practices, we always work hard to put back at least as much as we take when harvesting from the hedgerows.

So, take the opportunity to get outdoors, to exercise and to pocket some cash, all at the same time.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
