    I was thinking the same thing. It's one thing to sell some to a few neighbors, but the restaurant would be taking on a huge liability when serving to the public. Did u get an opportunity to view the other pics of mushrooms? I'm just wondering what they are and if they're edible. Really appreciate your assistance!

    Those other mushrooms are outside of my realm. I stick to only a few types and I can't positively ID those.

    There is a post on the Wisconsin boards, with a link, that addresses this very issue. And yes, you DO need a broker's license. Plus, you need multiple tens of pounds to really do any business. If you're going to sell, it's best to have the details ironed out in advance. Do they want them fresh or dried. Size? Delivery and payment?

    I'm in NE Ohio and I know some guys in the restaurant biz that I could sell morels to, but I've never found enough of them. So, I keep them for myself! :)

    I have visited the area but never hunted it. On my visit I did see Ash trees.
    Unfortunately I have no more Intel. than that. Good luck my friend

    I believe that anyone has to go through a class in order to be certified to sell mushrooms whatever type they may be. You could probably find a restaurant that would buy them at the back door but unless you and the buyer are positive that they are edible you may open yourself and the restaurant to liability

    You must be certified to sell mushrooms legally. You can take the class in the fall and in the Spring.
