This site is about finding, collecting, identifying and preparing the more safe and common edible and medicinal mushroom species of Maine, New England, and Eastern Canada. The content is aimed at cooks, foragers, herbalists, and restaurateurs.
In an economically distressed time where some families are finding it difficult to feed their families, wild foods can substantially supplement their requirements for cost effective foods. A lot of wild edibles can be found in your very own yard, locally, or a short trip to the country or forest.
If you would like to learn to identify wild edibles please click the link on wild crafting, or email for information. We can offer classes in plant identification year round here in Tennessee but spring and summer to early fall offer the most plants.
With constant food product recalls in the news recently, people are justifiably beginning to wonder if the food they are buying at grocery stores and restaurants is safe to eat.
Food safety is becoming a hot topic and a major concern in the U.S. and world wide. Some foods that we now consume on a regular basis may contain chemical additives, flavor enhancers, and are processed to the point of being tasteless with questionable nutrition value.
E-coli tainted produce, unsafe chemical additives, irradiated food, cloned and genetically engineered foods are not acceptable to people who are concerned with their health and the health of their families.
Wild foods are not genetically engineered to produce a larger, faster maturing crop, are not chemically fertilized, nor sprayed with insecticides. Foraging along highways and busy roadways is not recommended and we do not do it.
Are genetically modified foods harmful to humans?

We are now offering wild carrot seeds (also known as Queen Anne's Lace) (Daucus carota subsp. carota) and tinctures that have been used in the past by women who do not want to use synthetic hormone type pills (The Pill) or other devices as a birth control method.* Some people are using the wild carrot seed products for feral cats and dogs. We suggest you check with your vet before using anything on your pets.
