thanks for the java info. checked out the cafe import site - great site with cupping notes. anti-oxidants important for educating the consumers so thanks again. snow here today. starting to wonder if a snowy winter was a noshow. peace
Hello, I will we be foraging Ramps, and Fiddle Heads this season, looking for buyers. My min order is 200lbs. If interested email me, we can talk further about pricing. email: email@example.com
Just read that light-to-medium roast coffee beans have higher antioxidant levels than the green ones.
Hey Folks, there was a decent burn near Nakusp last year and is reasonable close to home so we expect to research and hit that area this spring -has hot springs, hiking, fishing nearby so great all around. Coffee has been exciting so far and our community is enjoying the taste. I presently get my beans from The Green Beanery -great selection and I use the Fair Trade - Organic beans. I will check out the Cafe Imports. Good to learn about the anti-oxidants and green beans. I am researching beans closer to home (west coast) that offers the same as the Beanery. Presently, I use a BBQ and homemade drum that creates tasty results - similar to poping popcorn - not to difficult after a few attempts but I did flame up the first batch. Yikes! good thing there was snow to dump into. For those curious, try it out, its economic and a superior taste. use a cast iron pan or ... once you try home roast ...yummy! Peace.
dunno about the Morels, potential maybe. Dried go out between $2.60 to $8.00 for 10 grams. Thats a big spread. I sold dried Morels in 2009 for $7.00 for 10 grams retail. And the Chanterelles for $12.00LB Yellow and $8.00LB white. I think there is plenty of opportunity for retail wild mushrooms where there is a decent population and residential area surrounding the venue. I mean a picker could sell 2 days a week for 100LB or so and gross $1,200.00, of course the net would be a fraction of that all things considered./// COFFEE... congradulations, roasting is a good business. Check out The Green Beanery website for a variety of Green Beans and smaller Roasters, also Cafe Imports out of Minneapolis has a tremendous selection of Green Beans on spot........Plus green coffe beans are one of the highest anti-oxidents.

cougarman,you must be interested in early morels,no,early buyer would be handy
we will need a morel buyer around 3rd week of march,are you in vancouver or
Hey folks. Havnt been around much in along time< but thought id let you all know that at 40 i finally started college....im studying science and hope to get into....yep a mycology program in a few years....wish me luck
Hey Wild Side,good luck with the morels.I don't know about there,but it's super dry here.There's no snow,and weather wise Jan. has been more like March.If this dry trend continues I'm afraid the morel season won't be so good.Not in this area anyway.
firstname.lastname@example.org - forgot to post em. anyone considering Canadian Kootenay Morel harvesting this spring em me. I hope to buy morels from credible harvestors on a small scale so pre season arrangements are necessary. Thanks in advance.
Howdy Friends, I trust all is well in all your corners. I've just launched a coffee roasting business that is enjoying some small success. As a small token of appreciation, I'd like to offer some fresh roast to Carla at her station and to Matsiman. Its organic and fair trade so if interested, please send me your address'. Still a little early but starting to dream and looking forward to Morels this spring. Peace and keep safe.
Hello fellow pickers , Well it seems that things are becoming peculiarly quiet lately with you all , i have been fishing down south and I will be in Nicaragua next month , however I don't believe I will be making it to the highlands, I remember a few years back , a humongous crop of kings at this time of the year that was on the mountains of Honduras . shit, good old times, anyways I'm heading to centralAmerica soon ,It's so lovely to see Matty here as always she keep us on track, Be well fellows.
Coastal cowboy and other Californicators....is the black season going yet?....I am working in AZ and headed to Seattle in the next few weeks and want to have a new picking experience...but also curious about commercial aspects-how much can an average picker get in a day?....I know this is variable, but I have friends @ Ukiah who want me to go with them and they say you can pick til you are tired...also, what is the shelf life?...I do have some chefs here in AZ that would buy all I could supply but I don't know if it is realistic for me to make a trip out just for blacks and other winter shrooms....and I mostly just want to try some...are they good cooked and stored like goldens?.... thanks for any info thanks, hw...
Well I can find the enforcement authorization under Forest Products; http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=15.100.150 but nothing to say what they are enforcing. I desire a link the actual law but cannot find it, help.
thanks JDS & puzzledmattie; heh heh, I just spotted a funny in the Olympic NF info. "... you cannot harvest and/or transport three (5 gallons) of a single species...". Me thunks that I yam edducated enuf to internalize that as being three five gallon buckets of single species for daily free usage??? lol Now to go read the actual law.
These are the rules for Olympic National Forest if it helps. We were told by the ranger that we could have one gallon each of three different species. Hope this helps. http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/olympic/passes/sfp/MushroomPicking.pdf
I found that information in the Revised Code of Washington (RCW). Here is that web-site: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/ But now I'm confused! After looking up the rules and reading them again, they seem to contradict themselves. Tilte 76 is called Forest and forest products. Subsection 76.48 is specialized forest products. 76.48.021, subsection 20, paragraph (f) says you have to have a permit for more than 5 U.S. gallons of wild edible mushrooms. However, a bill called "SHB 1406" (maybe that means Senate House Bill?) is where I found the rules about 3 gallons of a single species, and a total of 9 gallons of three different ones. That bill became effective July 24, 2005. Sorry if all that is confusing...once you get the RCW web-site there is a search box at the top of the page, so you might be able to find something I missed. Good luck!
JDS, do you have a website link to that Washington information, I have tried to find it in the past. I heard previously at a National Forest station that the state law limited it to three gallons total in possession per day for any vehicle no matter how many persons are being transported by a single vehicle and only one gallon per vehicle in Oregon. Any link to the actual law for either state would be much appreciated, thanks.
Washington State law regarding wild mushrooms gives a person the right to pick (in one day) three gallons of a single species, and up to nine gallons of three diffferent ones. Failure to comply is considered a gross misdomeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, a year in jail, or both. Does anyone know what the laws of other states are? Washington also does not sell permits to pick commercially on DNR land. How about other states?
No...whats on second?
But whos on first?

Anyone selling dried bolete? True king bolete only. Need 2 lbs. Please leave contact. Thanks.
Still picking some goldies, blacks are small yet, but the rain should help as the season starts up for them. Fort Bragg was hit by some frost killed alot of the boleats for a short season. Yellow feet and Hedge Hogs are doing well. Happy New Year to all. Hope the season plays well for all concern.
Are there any buyers active around Eugene - Drain?
Hi Andy, I need 5 lbs of Ecto please as soon as i can get it.
Nope Clinton, here on the Oregon Coast there are a few people picking still. We are actually in between crops at the moment, The winters have not really came on yet and the Freeze killed the other stuff ;-)
