Our favorite part of our business is getting to spend time with the land that we're fortunate enough to call home. With vast opportunities for adventure, it's impossible to get bored. It also gives our dog, River, a great chance to get out, stretch her legs, and see what tasty treats she can find.

Help Us Harvest!

During the spring and summer season, we are always looking for edible foraged ingredients. Let us know what you have in mind, and we'll let you know how much we'll pay. As spruce tips are what we need the most, we are always happy pay for $4 per pound, $5 per pound in Adventure Harvest credit, or $5 per pound donated to a local charity or non-profit. Have questions? Head over to our contact page.

What's Growing?

While we will try our best to list as many edible plants as possible, there are just too many to tell you about. Here are a few of our favorites. If you are new to foraging, please go with someone who is experienced in plant identification. Stay safe and do not eat it if you are not 100% sure you know what it is. There are a lot of look-alikes that are not edible.

Mid-April to Mid-May

The snow is melting and there is a change in the air. In Alaska, you can feel the energy and the excitement that spring is returning to the land. The crocus are blooming and the days are getting longer.

Mid-May to Mid-June

With spring comes the an array flowers. Some, like elderberry blossoms, are short-lived, while others like beach roses (rosa rugosa) will be around for the rest of the season. The scent of these flowers is intoxicating and adds a special ambiance to any foraging experience. 

Wild Violets


Beach Rose (Rosa Rugosa)

These are the most fragrant of the roses we use and a little goes a long way with these large, delectable flowers. Use them in tea, syrups, jellies, salads, pastries, desserts, and  cocktails. They are guaranteed to make any dish feel fancier. These hardy roses bloom from mid-May until October and are always a treat.


These delightful little flowers are a joy to see. They can be used in a variety of foods, from teas and syrups to salads and pastries. They have a very delicate floral flavor with a vibrant hue. We don't tend to pick these because they are just so darn pretty, it feels like a shame to ruin someone else's experience by removing them.
