Country picnics and nature walks for groups

At Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School we work together with our clients to develop specialised food events to suit both the occasion and their budgets. Whether it’s a team building event, corporate function, product launch, end of year function, or milestone birthday. For the last 20 years Wickedfood has been tailor-making food-related functions for our clients. Click here to see how much fun these classes are. We have many handmade products, and aprons available as corporate gifts and prizes.

From 10 to 50 people – From R2 950 ex VAT for up to 10 people, R295 ex VAT for each additional person. At an additional R950 we can offer guided farm tours – see page 3.

Due to the present Covid-19 Pandemic, we have developed a unique, safe outdoor enviroment for a special day out in the country. We offer hearty take-away picnic hampers to be enjoyed at special clearings in our indigenous forest, either as a brunch or lunch. We can also taylor-make menus to make the experience more interactive.

Our menu for the picnics consists of ±10 easy-to-eat mezze dishes as take-away picnic hampers. All food is pre-prepared and packed in sealed plastic containers, following strict health protocols as laid out. We use the very best locally grown, seasonal produce, which changes from week to week depending on what is available from our gardens.

Just bring your own drinks, eating utensils and glasses in a picnic basket. We provide sanitized chairs and tables – we seat 4 people per table, and each prepacked sealed plastic container serves 4 people. (at an additional R50pp we can supply crockery, cutlery and glasses). In the unlikely event of rain we have ample covered seating surrounding our vegetable gardens where we can still ensure social distancing.

Some frequently asked questions, answered

Do you include picnic blankets? 

 Each table receives 2 sanitised meat trays at their table, one with the food pre packed and the other with the crockery and cutlery, serviettes, salt, etc (if ordered at R50pp extra). The same containers can be used for rubbish and dirty crockery (as we don’t have rubbish collection, we request that all drink containers are taken back with the group).

Do you have table and chairs available? 

We provide sanitised chairs and tables, 4 chairs per table. We usually reserve picnic spot no 3 for larger groups as there is a lot of room for social distancing and spacing between tables.

Should rain be predicted, what options are provided?

If rain is forecast we will contact you the day before and if required we have ample covered seating surrounding our vegetable gardens.  

How does the walk work? 

All the routes are well marked. The top forest area, a 2km route is much cooler as most of it is under the tree canopy.  The bottom grassland, a 2km section is in the open where a lot of birds and wild seasonal flowers can be observed. They are both flat and easy to do. just come dressed appropriately, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bring a hat. 

What are the opening times of the facility?

Any time from 7am onwards in the summer. You will have the exclusive use of the facility for up to 5 hours from the pre organised arrival time. As this time of the year can be very hot with afternoon thunder showers, so many of our clients are opting to get in early and have the picnic as a brunch.

Do you have a guide or is it a marked route we follow for those who want to do it?

Both trails are well marked and you can’t get lost. Mike also does walking farm tours which take about 60 to 90 minutes, where he talks about his experiences of small-scale organic farming, as well as giving an in-depth philosophy to humane sustainable farming practises. You will walk through the heart of the farm which is off-limits to visitors, into the vegetable gardens, fruit orchards and animal pastures. Cost R950 for the group tour, maximum 20 people per group. For larger groups we can do back to back tours at an aditional R950 for the second group.
