On the farm we lovingly and naturally cultivate gourmet and medicinal mushrooms.
How did we come to be mushroom farmers? Well that’s a pretty long story but the short of it is; we love Maine, we love working with nature, and we are truly passionate about mushrooms and believe in what we do.
Our mushrooms are cultivated mainly indoors using supplemented hardwood sawdust. Why do we say cultivated? When you cultivate something, you foster its growth, and boy do mushrooms need fostering! Once they start “fruiting” (that is essentially what a mushroom is) nothing but a 5 star hotel will do! They need just the right amount of light, humidity, air and temperature and only then will they grow their best. It can be challenging but we love the challenge, it’s what makes the beautiful fruit.
