Event Details


One of the most exciting times of the year – time to make Autumn Olive Ketchup, Spicebush Snickerdoodles and Paw Paw Fritters! Join Lacey for a walk into the forest to collect the strangely exotic-tasting paw paws, pluck autumn olives and snip goldenrod for some tasty treats and a fall tea.
Plants we may see: paw paw, autumn olive, goldenrod, spicebush berries




Lacey has been wild fermenting, foraging and leading courses at Fox Haven for many years. In 2017 she was fortunate to have the opportunity to study under Sandor Katz as part of his weeklong Fermentation Residency in Tennessee. Some of her favorite ferments she’s made include Mimosa Blossom and Tulsi Wine, Autumn Olive Vinegar, Winter Greens Kraut and Lacto-fermented Black Walnuts – yum!


Fermenting Black Walnuts, tincturing medicinal wild weeds, nibbling Autumn Olive, weaving Wild Grape, plucking ripe Paw Paw, frying up edible mushrooms and so much more will be explored this year!

Join us for the third year of Fox Haven Foragers. We’ll visit some of our old favorites like Milkweed, Paw Paw, Goldenrod, Cattail, Jewelweed and Motherwort and we’ll introduce some new species to our forage like Witch Hazel, Japanese Barberry, Sassafras, and Blueberries.

Each Foragers class will include plant ID, foraging and processing the season’s bounty with local guides from diverse backgrounds and skill-sets. Class runs from 11am to 3 pm. For the first 2-3 hours class will be held in the field, gathering plants and learning botany skills. After a quick picnic lunch the last hour is spent processing and cooking or preparing the harvest into a tasty meal or a take-home medicinal.
