In this edition of Amish Heartland we take you on an adventure in mushroom hunting - Morel Mushrooms to be exact. We are at the peak of the season, and many avid hunters have already reeled in their finds. The Amish are no strangers to this hobby and you may even notice they are absent from their businesses from time-to-time taking advantage of the warm sunny weather.
Morel mushroom hunting can be an intricate processes. Having the right supplies is important and making sure that while you are hunting, you are taking care to conserve the environment in which you are hunting. Some of the most plentiful spaces could be easily destroyed if proper precautions are not taken.
