May 4th

9 tickets available.

Garlic Mustard

Most recognize this plant as an invasive species nearly impossible to eliminate. However, the upside is it's rated as one of the best tasting plants of early Spring and is packed with nutrients. The best parts are the top four to six baby leaves along with the tiny white flowers. Some compare it with wild arugula while others call it wild rapini. Either way the recipes are countless. From pesto to soups to salads. In England, where it's known as Jack by the Hedge, it grows naturally and is regarded as a delicacy.

Join us over hill and dale as we forage for these and other early Spring plants such as Wild Leeks, Trout Lilies, Marsh Marigolds and more.

Here's a couple of reviews from Yelp that might prove helpful.

We're hoping to see you on the trails.

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person


May 5th


Wild Garlic

15 ticketes available.

The Allium family goes full throttle in late April, well into May. Besides the highly sought after Ramps, Mother Nature offers up Wild Onions and Wild Garlic found mostly in waste areas, meadows and lawns, all adding wonderful flavours to soups, stews, salads and . . . PESTO!! On the medicinal side Alliums are known to reduce blood lipids, lower blood pressure and help to prevent blood clots. What a tasty and healthy way to make that warm jump into Spring. We'll be harvesting these along with Fiddleheads, Marsh Marigolds, Garlic Mustard and Dryad Saddle Mushrooms . . . did we leave anything out?

You will need to join us on the trails and see.

All of this rounded out by tasty rhubarb pies from The Black Angus Bakery. Locally brewed craft beer from Herald Haus and wines from Niagara are also included.

We've expanded our Hullett Marsh Morel Hunt to an extra day in order to accommodate the demand. In respect to this delicate enviromental system we will harvest these prized mushrooms at a different forest that is still to be determined. The trails at Hullett are among the most beautiful we have navigated and are home to countless species of birds including Cranes, Heron, several duck species and Swans. As always, these events are a "go" rain or shine.

This article by Keph Senett in Harrowsmith sums up who we are. Why not join us at Hullett Marsh and find out for yourself.

Tickets can be purchased by either e-transfer or Paypal.

Start time: 10:30 am

Victoria Day Foraging

May 20th

SOLD OUT.



It's Victoria Day and we're traveling out around the Hullett Marsh area, searching spectacular trails for Morel Mushrooms. We can't say enough about these mushrooms but they are truly fit for a queen. Unfortunately they are around for just a short time but the entire experience
is well worth the wait.

May is a wonderful month to walk in the forest and take in Nature's Bounty.

A wondrous cluster of Marsh Marigolds, Mother Nature's answer to spinach. That's right. Steamed or boiled in a few minutes this healthy plant graces any early Spring meal. These tasty and healthy plants grow alongside fiddleheads,
wild nettles and burdock.

12 tickets available.

One of the first edible mushrooms to appear in the Spring is the Pheasant Back, also known as Dryad's Saddle. Harvested when young, their taste resembles a mild, sweet cucumber. These fungi can be eaten raw or sauteed. Moreover, they can be dried and round into a powder for spicy seasoning. Along with these enticing fungi we will be harvesting wild leeks, trout lily leaves, garlic mustard, and more.
