The Forager


My name is Heikki Ruusunen and I am a professional forager based in Finland. I have offered my services previously exclusively in Finnish so I started this website to channel some of the amazing wild foods knowledge I come across.

Finland and other Nordic countries are the leading places for wild foods and foraging. I feel blessed to be a part of the Nordic scene and being able to work with very talented chefs and other individuals.

Finland is the last place in Europe where farming started, so by settling down relatively late, we still have a pretty strong tradition in foraging wild foods compared to other Western countries.

We also have a very unique law, ”Every Man’s Rights”, which guarantees us rights to move and forage almost anywhere in this beautiful country!

Best wishes,
Heikki Ruusunen
