Join our 2016 CSA and receive a half or full pound of fresh mushrooms each week from mid June - mid September. We grow mushrooms on the farm and forage nearby woodlands to bring our members a taste of the rich color, flavor, and health benefits mushrooms offer.
Mushrooms are a delicious and incredibly nutritious food & medicine. We grow shiitake, oyster, and lions mane on logs from sustainably managed forests and oyster on organic straw in our greenhouse.
CSA participants can enjoy log-grown shiitake, oyster, lions mane, red wine cap, chanterelles, and chicken-of-the woods in their share.
WATCH A SHORT VIDEO ABOUT OUR MUSHROOMS:
Some facts about mushrooms:
- They are known to reduce cholesterol, promote immune system health, and fight cancer cell growth
- The protein structure of mushrooms is very similar to animal proteins, making them a great source for vegetarians and vegans, who often lack this type of protein in their diets
- Mushrooms are one of the best sources of Vitamin D in the human diet. Drying mushrooms in the sun for 5+ hrs can increase their vitamin D content by 300%! Drying your own mushrooms is easy. (we'll tell you how)
Two share options:
fresh, log grown shiitake each week.
mostly shiitake, mixed with other mushrooms when available
The CSA runs from the second week in June through the second week in September, for a total of 14 weeks.
$112 for a half pound ($8/week)
$200 for a full pound ($14/week, 10% discount)
Shareholders also receive a weekly recipe and update from the farm and discounts on educational workshops we offer.
