Delheim's 10th Mushroom Forage

Tue, 16 June 2020

Delheim celebrates a decade of guided mushroom foraging. Book now for a pro-workshop & mushroom hunt, fungi feast and some Wild Ferment.

It has been 10 years since Delheim first began spreading the love of wild mushrooms, making it a pioneer in the region when it opened its forests to organized forages. The renowned estate in SA’s wine heartland of Stellenbosch, now continues to lead the tradition having announced the 2020 dates for its popular ‘wild hunts’ - 16 June and 3 July.

The wild hunts were started in 2007 by Delheim’s Nora Thiel. “In those years, people were even less familiar with mushroom foraging than today,” she says. She showed a few people how it’s done and the idea for organized forages was born. “It took three years before we could get enough people together as interest grew,” Nora recalls.

Cape Town mushroom specialist Gary Goldman returns to share his knowledge of the fascinating fungus and its health properties. Gary has been part of the experience since 2013 and has just assisted with publishing, “A Field Guide to Mushrooms & Other Fungi of South Africa”, which will be available for sale during the mushroom season at Delheim.
