Local

We’ve partnered with the local coffee shop Stick in the Mud, reusing their coffee grounds and local hay to grow our delicious oyster mushrooms!

Sustainable

Unlike other local mushroom growers, we don’t use any single-use plastics in our cultivation processes.

We’ve partnered with Lighthouse Brewing, reusing buckets from their production for our ongoing mushroom cultivation process.
