Our mission is to produce the highest quality, sustainably grown mushrooms in Colorado.

We are denver based & operate year round


Mile High Fungi LLC was established in 2014 by Michael and Liz Nail.  With backgrounds in sustainable agriculture and environmental science, we combined our skills and entered the fascinating world of mycology.  Both carrying degrees from the Evergreen State College of Olympia, WA we spent many days foraging for wild mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest.  The writings and teachings of Paul Stamets among many other inspiring mycologists have influenced our passion for mushroom cultivation and interest in the many aspects of the fungal kingdom.  

For us, mushrooms just make sense.  They blend our desire to provide healthy, local produce with finding creative solutions to harnessing the city's organic waste stream.  In this time of environmental instability we strive to produce using the most sustainable methods available, including solar and LED technology.  By partnering with local businesses we're able to utilize resources from our community for our community.  These amazing arborists, agriculturalists, wood workers, brewers and many more help us live the dream of sustainable mushroom farming. 

We currently sell our varieties at Farmers Markets and within our community.  This winter 2016-2017 we are in the process of building out a new facility so that we can upscale production to meet the growing demands of local farm to table restaurants.  So let us know if you'd like to feature them on your menu and join us in our quest to provide Denver with the finest gourmet mushrooms!
