Ready to rewild your food philosophy
As a farming family, food is very important to us. We’re connected to the land around us and understand the hardworking efforts that go into the production of every mouthful.
Your meals have been thoughtfully curated and ingredients, carefully sourced, based on the season and the activities during retreat to ensure they provide the right fuel & nutrition needed to nourish and restore you during your time with us.
Our menus are about celebrating food, farming and British produce. About nourishing for our bodies in order to thrive and be healthy, about connecting with each other, passing and sharing dishes amongst the table, the enjoyment of the flavors, textures and creativity in experimenting with ingredients and having fun!
Vic, The Wholesome Hippie Chef
Vic has been cooking, and cheffing for the past 8 years, from having her own organic whole food shop, retreat cheffing, and private events. She's a self-taught, intuitive cook with a deep passion for real food that nourishes the mind, body & soul.
Vic has been on her own journey with food and lifestyle, from living a whole-food vegan diet, to now a meat-based ancestral lifestyle and eating for nourishment, health, pleasure, and hormone nurture.
She is the biggest advocate for foods that nourish, with high mineral content that has been grown/raised with consciousness, connection, and in alignment with Mother Nature. She loves to nourish people, "it’s my thing" and I love the connection that food brings, connection to each other, and re-connection to ancestral practices and the lands.
All of our experiences are inclusive for those from all walks of life and you will be welcomed with an open heart.
