Finding Fungi is a fall and winter adventure in which we guide groups of up to four through various mushroom hunting hotspots in the region surrounding Myrtle Glen Farm. Not only will show how to properly identify and collect both culinary wonders and medicinal species, but we will also give a lesson in mushroom biology that can be carried on in your future mushroom hunting and identification endeavors. The day will include a picnic lunch out in the wilderness, supplied with sustainable foods and beverages made by hand at Myrtle Glen Farm. Once we return to the farm, we will demonstrate proper cleaning and processing techniques.
All the mushrooms you collect, you will be able to take home and enjoy. Depending on the time of year and where we focus our day’s energy, we can collect a number of edible species including, Chantrelles, Hedgehogs, various Boletes (including porcini), Lobsters, Hawk’s Wings, Candy Caps, Yellowfoots, Turkey Tails, Oregon Reishis, Oysters, and more.
For those who have chosen the “Farm-Stay Package” or have pre-arranged for a meal to accompany their “A la Carte” experience, a portion of our day’s bounty will be used, along with ingredients grown and foraged sustainably at Myrtle Glen Farm, to create a culinary masterpiece paired with one of our special homemade alcohols.
If you’ve already booked your reservation and meals at the farm, or you do not plan to stay overnight at the farm, you may choose to book any of our experiences as an “A La Carte” option. If you’ve already booked through Airbnb and are interested in booking a guided experience, please contact us to check for availability. Book in groups of four to save.
Our farm-stay package includes a two night stay in our farm-house with two farm-fresh gourmet breakfasts and two garden-to-table dinners produced from our own hand-crafted foods and alcohols.
