I am currently offering foraging tours around Westchester by appointment. Please contact me on Instagram @The.North.Feast or (646) 280-5616 to schedule a trip into the woods!
Westchester is home to an abundant array of gourmet, wild mushrooms including morels, black trumpets, maitake (hen of the woods), hedgehog, oysters, porcini, honey, lobster, and many more. There is also lots more to discover including different wood species for BBQ, trees to tap for sap, berries, plants, seeds, and nuts. Our backyards are slo home to hundreds if not thousands of medicinal trees, plants and mushrooms, many which have served as the backbone to traditional medicines to the peoples who have inhabited these lands for thousands of years. Modern medicine is only now starting to understand and unlock the powerful healing properties of these abundant local gems.
