Meet Our Mushrooms
This mushroom is the easiest to cultivate and grow outdoors naturally on hardwood logs. I offer many varieties of Shiitake strains; warm weather, cool weather and wide-range to suit your growing area.
Lions Mane Mushroom
My experience is that this mushroom grows well in a fruiting chamber. I have not had great success in growing naturally on hardwood logs outdoors.
My experience has proven these grow on many types of wood. There is a two-year incubation time before fruiting, but when they flush, you get a lot of these tasty mushrooms.
A prized medicinal mushroom that grows well in warmer climates. They grow naturally on
stumps. I can show you how to mimic that growing technique.
This is a wild foraged mushroom. I forage an abundance of this mushroom growing wild around the western NC area. I have not attempted to cultivate this mushroom.
Almond Agaricus Mushroom
This mushroom loves hot weather. I have had limited success in growing this mushroom. But if you like something like a button mushroom with an almond taste, this one if for you.
Wine Cap Mushroom
This is a great mushroom for beginners. It grows in a garden setting.
This is one of the easiest and gorgeous mushrooms you can grow. Easily cooked, they keep their crunch and color.
There are many strains to choose from to grow, mainly on poplar logs and willow logs.
