Upcoming Events for August

September ~ October ~ November

August 18th Forage and Feast


By mid Summer the Bolete Family of mushrooms are beginning to appear on forest floors. From the smallish brown Ash Bolete to the statuesque King Bolete, they are one of the better "finds" of the mushroom world and are easily identified by their yellowish pours under the cap. The trails are also host to other delicious fungi such as the Summer Oyster, the Giant Puffball and the crown tipped coral. Following our foraging trek we will return to Stratford for a lunch of seasonal wild fare hosted by The Forest Motel. Our four course meal will take place under a banquet tent alongside a beautiful lake. What better way to spend a Summer afternoon.

Included in the menu will be locally brewed craft beer, wines from Niagara and dessert prepared by The Black Angus Bakery.

Start time: 9:45 am
Where: Packam Sports Complex
Cost: $70 per person.

Tickets can be purchased through internet transfer or PayPal. For more information phone 519-271-3726 or email us at pucksplenty@gmail.com

Lactarius Deliciosus

Highly prized in Poland, these wild mushrooms of striking colour are quite abundant here in southwestern Ontario. Under the right conditions hundreds can be found in a single day deep inside the dark forests of conifers. Luckily for us, they come and go right through until the end of October. It will be an adventure you won't soon forget as we collect these along with Summer Oysters, Gem Studded Puffballs, King Boletes . . . wild fungi, each classified as "choice" on the culinary scale.

Puck's Plenty tours has been rated as one of the top foraging adventures in the world by Marriot International and Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Join us on the trails and find out why.

Start time: 10:00 am

Here they come!

It's the puffball season as the monsters of the fungi world make their appearance once again. The Giant Puffball is another mushroom rated as "choice" and we've found several recipes to prove it. Our favourite is the Puffball Pizza. It's amazing!

We'll take to beautiful trails that skirt lakes and streams and meander through darkened wood, home to an assortment of other mushrooms of late Summer. Wild edible plants will also be in abundance such as wild watercress, day lily tubers, wild ginger and more.

Start time: 10:00 am

Foraging for Mushrooms at Hullet Marsh

This past May we held our Morel Hunt at Hullett Marsh where all twenty participants went home happy with their bounty. Now, as we reach mid Summer, we return to this magnificent wildlife sanctuary to search for Giant Puffballs, Summer Oysters, Boletes, Coral and Tooth Fungi. Our backdrop is hundreds of acres of pristine forest alongside waterways home to Heron, Cranes, Egrets,
ducks and geese.
