Welcome to Blue Ridge Chaga Connection! My name is Kevin Krzyzaniak, I am the owner, operator and only employee. I offer the best in locally foraged Chaga and other medicinal mushrooms from my home in Asheville, North Carolina, part of the Appalachian mountain range. Using 100% sustainable methods of foraging, processing and packaging. In this page you’ll find a range of Chaga products along with other wonderful mushrooms such as Reishi, Turkey Tail, Lions Mane, Maitake, Indian Pipe, Cordyceps, Mullein, Birch Polypore, Usnea, and Shiitake. When in season, fresh Chicken of the wood, Chanterelles, Milk Caps, Maitake, Beef Steak, Lobster, Black Trumpet, Boletes and other edible mushrooms. I also lead mushroom and plant ID tours in the Blue Ridge mountains covering a wide range of medicinal and edibles that grow in this most diverse region of the world. I love to share the knowledge I have gained over the years, in the tradition of our ancestors and Native cultures that existed before us. All my products come straight from the natural forest, are 100% wild foraged, with care for the environment.
If your local find me at one of several tailgate markets, my products are also in a few health food stores or I can meet you anywhere in Asheville. Sometimes I deliver directly. If not local I ship my products anywhere. All my mushrooms come straight from the Blue ridge mountains here in Western North Carolina, it is 100% sustainably harvested, 100% organic and processed by hand the old fashioned way. I do forage Chaga from more northern regions such as VA, NY, VT, MI and ME. I have great respect for our mother nature and the environment so I take special care in the harvesting process, always leaving a percentage that regrows and a percentage for the ecosystem to regenerate and give thanks to every tree that gives this precious gift of healing medicine.
