Becoming a Certified Forager
Establishing credible and safe foraging practices is at the forefront of our mission here at Foraged. We love the idea of selling wild mushrooms and foods across the United States on our platform to anyone interested, but we do not like the idea of inadequate credibility and mis-identified species being sold.
Our products are vetted by certified foragers to ensure proper safety after posting and 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?
We encourage any and all foragers who wish to sell commercially to obtain proper selling permits for their region of the United States. Although some areas do not have applicable laws concerning the sale of wild mushrooms, we have generated a short list of the certifications that are available online.
Encouraging sustainability and proper conduct for all members.
The following is a list of foraging certification courses that are available online. This list is updated frequently to reflect the most recent certifications:
