Overview

Fiona and Malcom Falconer are wild about wild food! The Forage Forest in the garden of their home in Co. Wexford is a prolific paradise of wild and cultivated fruits, and herbs. Together with a traditional vegetable garden and Polytunnel which yields seasonal vegetables and salads,  their home grown produce forms the basis of a super range of hand crafted artisan dressings, syrups, chutneys, and snacks. And the name of this unique range? Wild About....of course!

Wild About products have been born through a huge lifestyle change for The Falconers. A life in London and careers in product design and documentary film making were swapped for the good life in the Wexford countryside. Dubliner Fiona was the Irish connection - but destination Wexford was chosen by sticking a pin in a map! Ecological building skills have created a passive house, and Malcom's agricultural childhood  on a smallholding in South Wales prompted the profuse planting of the garden - as Fiona says ' we went a bit mad!' Everything grown here is organic and heritage varieties abound. A walk through the Forage Forest reveals sloes, haws, rosehips, crab apples, wild pears, quince and a holy host of other delicious seasonal produce. Herb patches send heavenly fragrances through  the garden. In spring and early summer a huge nettle patch provides healthy pickings. The tunnel flourishes with chillies,  tomatoes, courgettes and more. With all this to hand, the Wild About range has something different to offer. A few samples of the first products given to friends and family received a rapturous response. Demand grew. A market stall was the first platform for sale. Now the Wild About range is in good food shops in Wexford and other areas in the country. Because of the seasonal aspect to this range, there's always a surprise in store. All items are hand made in small batches and once the season has ended for a particular plant or fruit, a new product is created from whatever is available in the garden. Wild About foods are a real celebration of home grown, and always reflect the time of year. The Falconers are nothing if not innovative and experimental. Every item they make  captures their natural, ecological and sustainable ethos, the simple way of life and way of growing - without chemicals and with Mother Nature lending a helping hand. New products are always in development. With this garden - you never know what will be created next! We know you'll be wild about Wild About!
