Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc. is committed to growing the finest quality specialty mushrooms using sustainable practices. We have been pioneer growers of fresh culinary mushrooms since 1977, when we were the first to commercially cultivate shiitake in the United States.
We grow more varieties of culinary and nutraceutical mushrooms than any other farm in the United States.
Our fresh mushroom division, Mycopia Mushrooms, has earned its reputation as the premier grower of top quality, flavorful forest mushrooms that are “no longer wild, but far from tame.” Our mushrooms are grown on oak-based substrate in reusable bottles. After the mushrooms are harvested, the spent substrate is recycled and turned into compost that is highly prized by local farmers and wineries. Our mushrooms have been certified organic and kosher since 2005.
