The Elkhorn Inn offers 3 "Foodie Foraging Excursions", as weather permmits, with the opportunity to then cook with Chef Dan and enjoy Dinner at the Inn!

Ramp Hunting in the spring (April): We guide guests to the area we call "ramp mountain" where ramps grow wild! They can then climb the mountain side and pick ramps, and if they like, then join Chef Dan back at the Inn making ramp pesto or pickled ramps. In order to go on a "ramp hunt" guests do need to have their own ATV and a helmet, a pick, and big sack! Guests of the Inn can also opt to enjoy a classic West Virginia Ramp Breakfast (eggs, bacon or sausage, sauteed ramps, and potatoes, or Chef Dan's "Green Eggs & Ham" made with ramp pesto, as long as the ramps and ramp pesto last!

Wild Blackberry Picking in the summer (July and August):
Guests can pick wild blackberries (with us on their ATVs), or from their car, or while in hiking in the area on their own- we will tell them of areas where there are blackberries), and then, if they like, join Chef Dan in making blackberry cordial, blackberry sauce, or blackberry-pepper salsa (from our own garden peppers, if possible), or making a Smoothie, or eating their berries with ice cream!

Pesto Party in the late summer/early fall:
Guests can pick basil and other herbs from our garden, and, if they like, make pesto with Chef Dan, and then enjoy a Pasta Pesto Dinner at the Inn!

Accompanied "Foodie Foraging Excursions" (berry or ramp picking), and cooking workshops  are $50.00 + tax per person. Guests must have their own ATV, helmet, pick, and sack in order to go on a "ramp hunt". Berry picking can be done on an ATV, if you have your own, or in your car, or while hiking in the area.
