  • How do you grow your mushrooms?
    Our mushrooms are tree-based and are grown on sterilized hardwood sawdust in a climate-controlled chamber at our farm.
  • How do I cook with your mushrooms?
    Our mushrooms are delicious simply sautéed with butter or olive oil and can be substituted in any recipe that calls for mushrooms. Each mushroom has unique flavor and texture characteristics that make it prefect for certain dishes. Tell us what you're cooking, and we'll be happy to recommend a mushroom!
  • How long will your fresh mushrooms last?
    Our mushrooms will stay fresh for about a week when stored in paper in the fridge. That is why we send our mushrooms home with you in a paper bag. Just put the bag in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy your mushrooms!
  • Do I need to wash your mushrooms?
    Our mushrooms are grown and harvested in a clean environment and do not need to be washed. From time to time, you may see a speck or two of something loose on your mushrooms. Those specks are tiny pieces of sterilized sawdust and can be easily brushed off before cooking.
  • Can I eat your mushrooms raw?
    Our mushrooms can be eaten raw in moderation but are best when cooked. Cooking the mushrooms not only releases the mushroom flavor but also releases the nutrients.
  • Do your mushrooms ever go bad?
    Our mushrooms are harvested at the peak of freshness, but over time they will begin to dry out. Even when showing signs of dryness, the mushrooms are still very much edible and can be easily reconstituted in hot water before cooking. When a mushroom goes bad it will typically appear unusually soggy or slimy.
  • How do I start a second flush after harvesting the first flush?
    After harvesting your mushrooms, use your hands or scissors to remove any mushroom tissue still on the surface of the block. Rehydrate the block by pouring water onto the block. Allow the water to soak for 5 to 10 minutes, adding more water as needed to keep the block wet. Drain any excess water from the block and resume regular spritzing to keep the block moist. If chunks of the block's surface were removed during harvest, you may have better results by taping the plastic closed, flipping the block over and initiating fruiting on the back side of the block.
  • What do I do with the block when I'm done?
    The spent grow blocks can be broken up and added to a compost pile, a garden, a flower bed, or any soil not in the direct sunlight. Don't be surprised to see mushrooms growing in the spring or after a cool rain!
  • Why mushroom jerky?
    We admit that making jerky from mushrooms seems like an unusual combination. It certainly seemed unusual to us after trying many of plant-based jerkies already on the market. While these "jerky" snacks were ok, they didn't seem to have a lot in common with meat-base jerky. We thought we could do better. After all, our mushrooms are often described as having a meaty texture. The tricky part was figuring out how to convert the meat-like texture into a jerky-like texture. It took a lot of trial and error, but we're super happy with the results! Our mushroom jerky is a healthy, all-natural, low sodium, vegan, gluten-free snack that has the health benefits of mushrooms and all the taste of conventional jerky.
  • Is your jerky vegan or gluten free?
    Yes, our jerky is vegan and gluten free. We use all-natural ingredients with no artificial additives or added salt.
  • Do I need to refrigerate the jerky?
    Our jerky does not need to be refrigerated and should remain fresh and soft when kept sealed in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
