New to Mushrooms? Start Your Journey Here

Our Forager Box subscription has been one of the most popular offerings on our website, a way to sample the latest and greatest mushroom products all carefully curated by our fungi-loving staff. But we kept getting requests from our community for a box that would help someone who was just getting started on their mushroom journey. 

While each Forager Box is filled with products to help inspire you to integrate mushrooms into your daily routines, they wanted one especially selected for newbies. Well, we heard you loud and clear — and our new First-Time Forager Box delivers! Our team had so much fun putting together this limited-edition collection foraged for the fungi-curious. 

Packed with over $190 worth of products, it will help you — or someone you care about — start a mushroom journey. Each item will help you discover the magic and mystery of mushrooms. Read on to learn a little bit about each item and why we chose it. 

Tip: As with our seasonal Forager Boxes, this one is only available for a limited time. Once it’s gone, that’s it. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate — or it’ll vanish like spores in the wind.
