In just a couple days I am going to be embarking on a year long Caught Not Bought challenge. I will be joined by a few brave dudes who are going to attempt the challenge with me. There are also folks who are planning to jump in for a week or month at a time. We’ve done a couple month long challenges and some shorter ones but this will be the longest by far. Living in Florida comes with some major benefits and along with challenges. There is really an overabundance of stuff to eat here and we know from experience that this challenge is not only possible but will be a blast. The difficulty of trading our Publix subs and pizza for muscovy ducks and smilax will be a task to push through but it’s one I’m excited about. Be sure to follow along this year as we hike, hunt, spearfish, forage, and who knows what else. Watch the videos, follow @caughtnotbought on Instagram, get engaged, and join us if you’re so inclined. We will be foraging every day for a year. You’re more than welcome to walk around the park or woods with us.
The Rules Are Simple:
- Only foods that are caught, hunted, foraged or homegrown are allowed
- Basic seasonings (salt, pepper, etc) are allowed, along with oil for cooking
- Black coffee and unsweet tea are allowed but not recommended
- Bartering is allowed but only for other items that fall within the parameters of the challenge; no trading Spanish needle for meatball hoagies.
