What makes our foraging treks quite magical this time of year is Deer Haven Farm, the final stop on our adventures. Besides the wonderful mushrooms that grow under the conifers, we are followed my two young emus, Allan and Rick, while barnyard animals such as peacocks, European hogs and assorted fowl watch our every move. What better backdrop while you are out in nature.


Our foraging treks take place across beautiful woodland trails just minutes from Stratford, Ontario with the purpose of educating participants in the art of identifying wild edibles and mushrooms, prudent harvesting and, in the end, appreciating their wonderful taste and health benefits.

Outings are available most weekends and weekdays through mid November.

Cost: $30 per person.

Unless otherwise noted, foraging treks are limited to 15 participants.

For more information phone 519-271-3726 or email us at pucksplenty@bell.net.

To reserve a foraging trek you can send a cheque by regular mail. We also accept email money transfers. An electronic gift card will be sent to you along with a receipt.
