In the mountains of NC Inspired by the woodland squirrels, fairies, and gnomes, Amber’s family gathers and tucks away an impressive cache of wild nuts annually. They feast on their nuts all year round and likewise share them with their herd of forest-fed hogs at Glorious Forest Farm.
She is a magical concoctress of wild food delicacies and has been told she makes “the best food ever.” Amber brings all manner of nut confections and wild foods to her local farmers markets.
When she's not making her own creations Amber puts her culinary expertise to the test at the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, by helping to test herbal and wild foods recipes. She also helps with recipe development and keeps the garden and apothecary in tip top form.

In addition to her wild food shenanigans, she’s also adept at gathering local plants and minerals and makes small-batch, seasonal tinctures, potions and brews.
