Gourmet Mushrooms

Gourmet Mushrooms

Gourmet mushrooms are not only delicious, but they have numerous associated health benefits.  The major health benefits of consuming mushrooms comes from the presence of immune system enhancing compounds, high levels of antioxidants, and a low calorie to protein ratio. During the winter, when less time is spent outdoors in the waning sunlight, mushrooms are an excellent source of vitamin D to replenish and nourish the body. Not only are mushrooms integral to ecological and personal health, they serve to complete many of the nutrient cycles on the farm.

We cultivate shiitake, oyster, and king stropharia.  We cultivate shiitakes on inoculated oak logs.  Oyster mushrooms are grown on wheat straw.  King stropharia cultivation takes place on inoculated wood chips.

We plan to add other varieties such as maitake, reishi and hopefully portabella. Some of these varieties will take a full year to establish before fruiting, so make sure to contact us early with requests and to check back periodically for updates.
