About The Wild Side Of Vermont


The Wild Side of Vermont was started back in 1993.  It became Dave Kaczynski's goal to spend time in the wilderness teaching his young children about all the benefits  the "Wild Side" has to offer. It quickly went from hobby to obsession. This fact can be confirmed by just about anybody that knows or has been gathering with Dave.

He soon began to provide local restaraunts and merchants with a wide variety of edible greens, roots, tubers, fruits, nuts ,and of course wild mushrooms. 

We seek out and gather everything from morels to miatake's. From the first hint of leeks and fiddleheads in the spring to the half frozen late fall oysters. 

With our many years of experience in the wildcrafting business we offer our expertise in land evaluation and assessment to any folks who are interested in finding out what kinds of wild edibles are growing on their property. For a fee the assessment involves a three season visit to the property, evaluation, and concise report.  If you are interested you can always "take a walk with the Wild Side"

The "Wild Side Of Vermont" is family-owned and operated right here in Worcester, Vermont. Other Wildcrafters may offer similar services, but we are dedicated to holding education and sustainability, coupled with minimal environmental imapact as our most important priority. Keeping that in mind, we always deliver the highest quality wild edibles and mushrooms available.
