Hazelnuts and aronia are newly emerging, cultivated woody perennial crops in the Upper Midwest, and wild mushrooms are part of a long tradition of foraging in this region. These forest products can help chefs create locally-sourced signature dishes, and can help landowners supplement and diversify their income. This workshop will address the marketing of these crops through panel discussions and a tour of the largest hazelnut planting in Wisconsin.
