At Forbes Wild Foods we feel it is important to curb rural and wild areas from being developed for housing, industry, or transportation. Through the sale of wild foods we are able to educate people about local native foods that would otherwise not be available to people trapped in urban centers. Through appreciating the foods this country grows you can develop a direct connection, and need, to preserve the remaining wild spaces we have left. When we lose land to new development, we not only lose native and wild species, we lose our awareness and knowledge of them. If you own land and would like to learn how to help protect it, forage on it and create a progressive relationship with it please contact us.
