Founder & Forager

East Coast Wild Foods is led by Sarah d’Apollonia.

Sarah holds a degree in Biology and a Master degree in Sustainable Agriculture. Sarah has always lived a life inspired by the beauty of nature. She is a biologist by training and has an appetite for travel and culture. She has lived in Spain, Denmark, Italy, Bolivia, and Japan and has taken the time to explore the local food ingredients in these cultures.

After exploring for several years, Sarah returned home to Nova Scotia to discover that many wild ingredients growing in Nova Scotia are underutilized in East Coast cuisine. So, in 2016, East Coast Wild Foods was formed with the mission to bring the wild flavours of Nova Scotia to the menu and rediscover East Coast terroir.

Sarah is happy to share the knowledge she has learned over the years to bring you fresh, wild, and quality ingredients which are sustainably harvested from Mother Nature.
