Mushroom Farm Tours
Have you ever wondered where mushrooms come from?
How do they grow?
How long does it take for them to mature?
How might I cultivate them at home myself?
Let Greg Carter take you on a tour of his unique and sustainable farm. He will teach you the science of cultivating mushrooms. Learn what kind of wood these mushrooms need to grow on and how to inoculate a log. Watch Greg at work inoculating logs, and give it a try yourself, if you like.
Wild Mushroom Hunt: Stalking The Wild Edible Mushrooms
All year, mushroom hunters look forward to the fruitful season of summer to hunt for wild mushrooms. Join the owner of Deep Woods Mushrooms, Greg Carter, for a mushroom hunt and discover some of the rich, edible mushrooms growing in Western North Carolina.
This 3-hour walkabout will get you started on how to positively identify the choice, edible mushrooms here in the southern Appalachians, as well as the ones that are better viewed than stewed’. Come prepared for a hike that will be tailored to the people or group. Sturdy shoes, long pants are highly suggested. Dress accordingly for the weather. I hunt rain or shine.
You will get the “tools of the trade” and printed information on the top edible and medicinal mushrooms along with ongoing support for your learning curve on hunting wild edible mushrooms. Greg will cook up the bounty we find so you can experience the tastes and textures of the different mushrooms.
On our forays into the deep woods, we will hunt for Morels, Chanterelles, Chicken of the Woods, Milky Caps and more delicacies of the forest. If you are planning a visit, book a private mushroom hunt of your own.
Your first Mushroom hunt includes a collection basket, a mushroom hunting tool and the booklet “A taste of enchantment.” One kit per couple or household. Additional kits are available.
