Forest Folk Fungi

Joyful Belly

The Intention

Beyond just digesting food, we digest experiences, emotions, and inherited traumas and beliefs in this lifetime. Healthy digestion means that we are getting the most nutrition possible from our food as well as from our life experiences while at the same time letting go of that which does not serve us. When we support our digestive pathways, we support growth.

Lion’s mane mushroom, also called Mountain Priest, is an extraordinarily beautiful fungal ally that has been used as a tonic for the stomach and digestive processes, as well as gut-brain health. It unites with roots, flowers, and seeds in a flavorful dance to help aid digestion, settle upset stomach, and optimize nutrient assimilation from food. 

All Forest Folk Fungi offerings are prepared using a proprietary double extraction process and made in cooperation with foraged and organically-grown fungi and plants, and all wildcrafting is done with deep respect for fungal friends in the mountains of southern Appalachia.

The Forest Folk Fungi Story

Forest Folk Fungi is a medicinal mushroom apothecary located in the foothills of Appalachia. Founded in 2015 by Ali and Joe Banks, who are cultivators, medicine makers, and gardeners, Forest Folk offerings are created by honoring strict wildcrafting practices that value ecosystems over profit. Ali and Joe believe deeply in reciprocity with nature; in operating in a way that reveals deep reverence for Mother Earth. Like gathering only what they need and have the capacity to process and no more, choosing mature specimens that have already sporulated abundantly, carring mesh foraging bags to aid in spore dispersal, and deferring to the wisdom and wishes of the indigenous. They create - and live - in phenomenal integrity. Always asking how they can deepen their expression of respect for the forest. How they can deepen their integrity in all they create.
