Medicinal Mushroom Tour with Vermont Food & Farm Tours

With your hiking boots on, we'll wander through the forest together with our guide, "Mushroom Man" Nick in search of wild edible mushrooms. How do you know if a mushroom is safe to eat? What do they smell like? What is the natural habitat of each variety? What are the health benefits associated with each mushroom? These are some of the questions we'll get answered. We'll return to Nick's farm and "inoculate" some logs with shiitake mushroom spawn. You'll get to take one home to "fruit" and then eat. A delicious organic lunch will end our celebration of mushrooms. Four hours and includes organic lunch. 10AM-2PM. Register here: https://www.vtfoodtours.com/book-tour-now/

Can be a pre-scheduled tour already on our calendar, or a pop-up tour. Pop up tours usually happen when guests to the Mad River Valley arrive and just find out about our tours. As long as we aren't already booked, we can create a new tour for your group. Minimum 4 people, maximum 15.
