In this video, Marcie Mayer takes your around her oak farm in Greece and shows you behind-the-scenes how acorns are being used as food.
Acorns are a gluten-free, high nutrient food source we need to pay attention to, especially in an era of climate change.
As food security becomes more and more fragile, they could be part of the solution to feeding the country.
If stored correctly (which Marcie talks about in the video), they can be preserved for decades.
As she says: “That food security doesn’t exist in any other material”. Other nuts simply go rancid.
Recently I interviewed Marcie for my podcast. She reveals all about how to gather, store, process and use acorns in your home. Click here.

My Latest Print Book is Now Available on Amazon
For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.
I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.
I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
