What's a Forage Box?

The Forage Box is a subscription of all things wild. From wild mushrooms to fiddleheads to ramps to cattail pollen. We work with local and international foragers to bring you the best of offer year-round. The Forage Box is enough for a few nice dinners, and you'll probably have enough to practice some pickling or canning too!

 

What's a mushroom box?

The Mushroom Box is two pounds of wild and locally cultivated mushrooms. Its perfect for the mushroom lover that is wants to get the freshest, most delicious mushrooms around. 

 

Where do my wild edibles come from?

We work with both local and non-local foragers to bring you the best on offer during the season. We love local, but we also love supporting foragers from other parts of the country/world. Know that we are obsessive about our sources, so no matter where they're foraging, the people we work with are experts and will always bring you the best foods available. When you get your box we'll send an email detailing where your ingredients come from.

 

Is foraging sustainable?

Honestly, it depends. If a forager is just in for a quick buck, and they take 100% of whats available, it is decidedly not. If, like our professional foragers, they're interested in the sustainability of the ecosystem, not only ethically, but so they can come back year after year to harvest, then it is one of the most sustainable ways to eat. There are no pesticides or fertilizers being sprayed on our foods, and the energy needed to grow them comes purely from the sun. Our forager make their livings collecting wild foods, so it's in their best interest to take a long view of sustainability.
