“Mushroom Guy” has a lifetime of wilderness skills and a contagious curiosity for how to interact with everything in Nature. He's never had a 9 to 5 and is equally interested in winter camping as he is in the nuances of Crypto and the colonization of Mars. Lucky for us, he chose the path of elevating mushrooms and wild foods over 20 years ago.
Michelle has a finger in pretty much every piece of the Untamed Feast pie. Branding, e-comm, food safety, inventory, and on a lucky day… she still gets to pick a mushroom or two. She’s a proud 'weed eater' and is delighted to be contributing to alternative food systems and influencing people to try something wild.
Usually found in front of a screen designing something beautiful, Matt takes an annual escapade to recommune with nature, to hike hard, get dirty, and do other 3 dimensional stuff like widdle a bow & arrow, or build an outdoor oven from a steel drum. He’s Michelle’s brother and artist extraordinaire behind the Untamed Feast brand.
Chelsea is a chef by training and an angel by design – we didn’t know what we were missing until we found her. Her manufacturing powers are the metaphorical oil that greases the Untamed Feast machine. She keeps our playlists fresh, our spirits light, and our tummies full of baked goods. You will often see ‘Chels’ and her dazzling smile behind Untamed Feast event booths.
Rio & Jenny
Rio... unser Freund der Fisch, thankfully chose Canada to be the land of his dreams and as luck would have it... then met the girl of his dreams. Rio & Jenny now have a home on Haida Gwaii but seem to be at home no matter what country or forest their current adventure has brought them to.
Formerly a loyal Untamed Feast customer, this loveable, bearded bear has become our right hand man. Rod is a passionate chef, and when not honing his mushroom picking powers or rescuing animals, he may be spotted behind an Untamed Feast event booth.
Sam & Sue
Sam, Eric’s dad, is a log cabin builder, a man of many other trades, and a man of many, many stories. Sue hates bugs and being dirty, but she loves hiking and picking mushrooms?! When they aren’t slaying mushrooms, Sam & Sue split their time between their cabin in the mountains and their restored saloon in the Mexican desert.
