The Maitake has become my favorite edible mushroom, eclipsing the elusive Morel mushroom. Maitake has a distinct earthy flavor and a texture which is not lost in cooking. This fungus is High in Vitamin D, Niacin, Riboflavin, and Potassium. The Maitake mushroom improves heart health by reducing cholesterol. Beta Glucan, which is found in maitake supports a healthy immune system, targets certain types of cancer, and helps with diabetes management.

We have been foraging the Blue Ridge Mountains for over 30 years, happy to share the wonders of nature with family and friends. A close friend suggested there may be countless others, worldwide, who would also love to partake of the diverse wild goods this area has to offer. Grandfather Medicinals is the platform I developed to share this unique goodness. I am continually awed by the volume and quality of the people I have met in this undertaking. My time is best spent in the woods, so I keep processing, labeling, packaging, etc. to a minimum. I am happy to talk fungus and plants whether any products are purchased or not. I keep finding that the people who are involved or interested in these things are kind, good people. We all need more of that in our lives! Thank you for stopping in.
