Wild mushroom

Wild mushroom hunting is an art that must be mastered to ensure safe consumption and protect the species. Mushrooms are collected in their natural forest habitat according to an environmentally sound process that considers seasonal availability, which may vary significantly, especially depending on rainfall. Specialized, locally owned businesses like Gaspésie Sauvage sell fresh and dried mushrooms and mushroom powder.
