MUSHROOMS

Mushrooms are steeped in lore and mystery. Their study is known as the science of mycology, derived from the Greek word myco. Oriental medicine has long revered mushrooms for their health-giving and health-preserving properties and modern studies now show that polysaccharides contained in some mushroom species act as immune system stimulants, blood pressure regulators and cholesterol watchdogs. 

Growing your own organic mushrooms is a healthyfun and educational experience. Kits for indoor growing and logs or spawn for outdoor garden culture give you flexibility for year round cultivation. 

Mushrooms are a versatile ingredient - Quick and easy to cook, they not only make a tasty addition to almost any dish, but can easily stand alone of the star of a meal as well.  Check out of recipe page for some our favorite dishes around the farm. Mushrooms are best stored in brown paper bags, never plastic. If left in the fridge crisper drawer, they may dehydrate naturally. To rehydrate simply soak them in warm, not hot, water for about 20 minutes.
