Foraging Certification Courses

Establishing credible and safe foraging practices is at the forefront of our mission here at Foraged, and foraging certification is a pillar of proper food safety. Our mission is to increase access to healthy, sustainable wild foods for people all across the United States. As the leader in wild & specialty foods, Foraged is committed to food quality, food credibility, and food safety.

Our products are vetted by certified foragers to ensure proper quality. We remove and permanently ban all sellers who post illegal or non-commercially acceptable species that are not found in this list. But what about future sellers?
