Please check the Hook & Ladder website for up-to-date Covid protocol details.

Some people are allergic to even the safest mushrooms. The first time you try a new wild mushroom, it is important that you eat only a small amount. Most wild mushrooms should not be eaten in large quantities since they are difficult to digest. Please consume responsibly. The Hook and it’s partners are not responsible for any adverse reactions brought upon by unknown allergies and/or over consumption.
