We truly do live in Fiddlehead Heaven... nestled here in the Canadian Maritime Provinces! For generations (dating back to 1778 for my family) picking fresh Fiddleheads or the Ostrich Fern (Matteuccia struthiopteris) Dandelion Greens, and Lambsquarter has been a Springtime tradition for most families here in New Brunswick, Canada for generations!

After returning to my home province of New Brunswick in 2006 due to illness, and pysical complications from my fall in 199. I was the first to harvest the Chaga mushroom here in North America, first for my own health and then made it available to the public here in North America and to the rest of the world in 2007. We were the first website in the world to offer natural wild Chaga mushrooms to you in it's wild natural form!
