Great Lakes Treats
Great Lakes Treats Story
Our passion for the outdoors has paved the path for Great Lakes Treats. In 2017, my husband and I were certified by the Midwest American Mycological Information as mushroom experts allowing for the legal sales of wild foraged mushrooms in the State of Michigan. Since that time, we have learned so much about the importance of mushrooms in our food system. We have seen an increase in demand for many of the medicinal mushrooms especially in the last year due to the many claims of immune support. Our product line has grown substantially. In addition, we have several wild foraged class offerings both locally and throughout the state through the Department of Natural Resources.
Great Lakes Treats Products
Our current offerings include dried wild foraged medicinal mushroom teas including chaga, reishi, and turkey tail along with wild foraged ramp powder. Great Lakes Treats is proud to wear the Seal of Certified Sustainably Foraged. By choosing the this seal, you are choosing foods foraged with keeping the principles and standards designed to ensure long-term viability and preserve their time-honored place in American food culture.
