If you love wild foods, especially wild huckleberries, you will love Northwest Wild Foods.
According to their website:
Located between the temperate Puget Sound and the rugged Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest, Northwest Wild Foods is a small, family-owned company in Burlington, Washington, that is dedicated to bringing you the rare and natural wild flavors of our region and beyond. Our wild berries are hand-gathered in areas such as the lush woodlands of the Cascade and Olympic Mountains, where our intrepid pickers often find themselves competing with Black bear, cougar, and other animals for delicious juicy berries.
Their offerings of wild berries are one of the largest selections offered online. See all the varieties here: Wild Berries.
Many of their wild berries are handpicked in the mountains in the Pacific Northwest from Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and Canada. They also have a handful of select berries harvested from Europe.
Morel Mushrooms Season is On!
Tom LaMonte and his father, Rick, tell me that Morel Mushrooms are some of the earliest crops of wild foods featured on their website. If you love wild mushrooms, check out their availability here.
Other offerings, which also include gourmet food products using their fresh wild foods, are listed below:
- Dried Berries
- Dried Mushrooms
- Fresh Frozen Mushrooms
- Fresh Mushrooms
- Fruit Spreads
- Gourmet Berries
- Handmade Pies
- Organic Berries
- Organic Nuts
- Pure Fruit Powders
- Smoothie Cups
- Wild Berries

Because they are concerned with keeping the product fresh, frozen products are shipped Monday through Wednesday and packed with dry ice for delivery in 1 to 3 days.
The International Wild Huckleberry Association has worked with the LaMonte’s for several years. Although we have not purchased items from them directly, we have referred many huckleberry producers who have relied on their fine selection to make many of the delicious Pacific Northwest gourmet foods seen on many store shelves in the area.
Check them out for their fresh, frozen, and packaged products.
Make sure to tell Rick and Tom that the folks from the International Wild Huckleberry Association say hi!
