No. We have previously offered our mushrooms to restaurants in Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Huntsville, AL. We found there simply was not enough demand to justify the effort and expense. Chefs are welcome to purchase our mushrooms at any of the farmers markets we attend. Please note we accept all major credit cards, ApplePay, and cash. We do not accept checks.
We do not offer farm visits. Mushroom cultivation requires a level of cleanliness that we cannot maintain if we allow farm visits. We also consider our methods and especially our substrate mixes to be proprietary. There are farms who do allow visits. Contact us directly for a list of farms who allow visitors.
No. We do not offer courses or workshops on mushroom cultivation. There are many farms who do. Contact us for a list of farms who offer mushroom cultivation instruction.

Fresh mushrooms will keep best in a Kraft (brown) paper bag in the crisper of your refrigerator. Never store fresh mushrooms in a plastic container.
No. We are farmers, not foragers. All of our mushrooms are farmed. We do not forage. There are literally millions of varieties of mushrooms with MANY similar characteristics. Mushroom identification is a tedious process and involves much more than just a quick look. NEVER eat any wild foraged mushroom unless you are 110% sure it is edible.
