Taste of the Earth

Cheboygan, MI, US

About Taste of the Earth

We are a small family business located in northern Michigan. Our journey into the woods to find elusive gourmet mushrooms began early in life for us, but it really began to take off several years ago when a family member shared a variety of wild mushrooms for us to sample. Among them were Black Trumpets, and that was all it took! We fell in love, and began venturing out to the woods with our 8 children in tow. We collected mushrooms, took spore prints, and researched day and night. We scoured books and online resources to learn all that we could, and ultimately earned our certification in wild mushroom identification through the State of Michigan. This would allow us to be able to sell our foraged goodies, which was perfect, as our bounties became more than we could consume, preserve, and gift to friends and family. Thus began our adventures with Taste of the Earth.

All of our wild plants and mushrooms are harvested by our family of experts, and carefully inspected every step of the way to verify identity and quality – from harvesting, to processing and packaging. We never outsource, and take great pride in the fact that our products are found in the deepest reaches of the remote forests of northern Michigan – far from roads, businesses, cities, and homes.

Sustainable foraging practices are at the forefront of what we do. We prioritize forest locations that are marked or scheduled to be clear cut in the near future for the bulk of our foraging. Especially for items like Chaga and Wild Ramps, as these take a bit of time to grow, and may easily be harmed if over-harvested. We always leave more than we take, and are careful not to harm the trees, substrate, mycelium/mychorrizal networks, rhizomes, etc. while harvesting the fruits.

We are excited to share our bounty with you! Feel free to take a peek at the varieties we have to offer, and reach out if you have any questions!
