Wild Organic Food

We collect and use only the finest, ethically, wildcrafted ingredients
(collected by ourselves).

This includes a wide range of unusual and hard-to-locate plants and
mushrooms...and, never collect more than we anticipate we will need for
ourselves, for market, membership, reserve and for gifting.

Therefore, we limit the number of memberships we will accept and keep only
a very limited supply on hand from season to season.

It has always been our policy to promote and encourage alternative
economic resources besides "just" timber or agribusiness.

We promote the use of our wild edibles while
  1. conducting and collecting research on the various plant forms         
    (native and immigrants) occurring in the wild,
  2. encouraging and educating the public to the benefits derived from
    their usage, and
  3. helping to preserve the plants' natural habitat, thus ensuring a
    continuing supply for generations to come.

Please contact us directly if you would like additional information or go
directly to
The Wild Store if you would like to sign up.  Thank you!

We look forward to collecting and sharing with you!!!
