At Getting Back to Nature™ we have decided to re‐learn about the native foods that were consumed in Kentucky and the South before the arrival of Europeans. Some of the impetus for this interest came from Obiora hearing someone speaking about there being an estimated 30, 000 edible plant species worldwide, but only 150 are consumed, and out of that 150, only about 30 are eaten in the United States. Also it’s evident that the "food"—not everything that is sold in stores can be considered food nor real (i.e., GE/GMO, lab‐made, synthetic, etc.)—that we eat plays a big role in the increase in incidents of dis‐ease, especially here in the United States. Therefore we felt that it was a good idea to resurrect and regain knowledge of the foods that had been consumed in the past. With this being the case, many of our food products are foraged.
Our value‐added food products are artisanal and made from scratch. For example, we make Apple Pectin in‐house for jams, jellies, and syrup that need pectin. We do not use fillers nor additives and believe that our most important ingredient (whether listed or not) is love.
Forager and Twin Forager signifies that one or more ingredients has been foraged.
We are aware that many plants have been wildcrafted almost to extinction, so we do not harvest more than what is needed to insure that pollinators and other wildlife can continue having food to forage.
The MA logo signifies that at least one ingredient was grown or foraged from Martin Acres.
