I practice ethical wildcrafting and forage primarily on our chemical-free, organic ecofarm property. I am also a formally trained clinical herbalist. I have been foraging for many years and am certified and authorized by the State Health Department and Department of Agriculture to sell foraged mushrooms. We offer many mushrooms throughout the year including Morels, Chanterelles, Chaga, Black Trumpets, Turkey Tail, Lobster, Reishi, King Boletes, Lions Mane, Blewits, Milkies, Puffballs, Oysters, Chicken of the Woods and Honeys. We forage many kinds of wild Pennsylvania and New York Mushrooms and offer dried, fresh, tinctures, powders, teas, handmade mushroom inspired jewelry and gifts for the mycologist and mushroom lover in your life. We also forage many kinds of wild nuts including hickory and walnut. I am able to wildcraft many wild edible plants throughout the year including ramps and leeks, elderberry, medicinal plants and more. If there is something specific you are looking for, let me know.
