The use of acorns go back into the mists of time.

An ancient food that unfortunately these days is sorely neglected.

Marcie Mayer is an extraordinary acorn pioneer and has devoted her life to harvesting, processing and researching acorns.

As a superfood, acorns meet many of our food challenges in the 21st century. However, even though oak trees are abundant in so many countries, acorns have been forgotten and have even been mislabelled toxic.

In this talk, Marcie demystifies the role of acorns by highlighting their nutritional, dietary and health value in our lives.

She believes that harvesting acorns benefit our environment, our economy and our health.


Recently I interviewed Marcie for my podcast. She reveals all about how to gather, store, process and use acorns in your home. Click here.
