Our mission is to produce the highest quality, sustainably grown mushrooms in Colorado.
We’re a seasonal mushroom farm, operating May – December, serving local markets, CSAs and farm-to-table restaurants. With humble beginnings in the heart of Denver, we’ve upscaled and moved our production to Conifer, CO, enabling us to sustainably serve our community.

WHITE & BROWN BEECH
Hypsizygus tessellatus $16/LB
Also respectively known as Hon Shimeji and Buna Shimeji, these grow in beautiful clusters known for their strong flavor and hearty composition. They can be bitter & astringent raw, but hold up well to higher temperature cooking like stir frys and soups.
Pleurotus nebrodensis $16/LB
Originating from Sicily, these mushrooms are also known as Italian oysters. They are meaty and packed with a buttery flavor. Having many similarities to Kings they stand apart as the mushrooms are almost entirely a cap. They can hold up to the grill or be tossed into your favorite pasta dishes.
WILD FORAGED MUSHROOMS
Seasonally available | SOLD AT MARKET PRICE
Chanterelles are rich in flavor, with a distinctive taste and aroma difficult to characterize. Some species have fruity, apricot notes, others a more woody, earthy fragrance, and still others can even be considered spicy.
Morels have a distinct and earthy flavor. Both meaty and tender these mushrooms have a delightful texture. Their hollow body and honeycomb cap make them unique amongst their wild foraged counterparts.
These rich-tasting mushrooms impart a pungent, woodsy flavor to any number of dishes. They have a beautiful smooth texture and are used both fresh and dried, as their flavor intensifies with drying.
Chicken of the Woods
As the name suggests many believe this mushroom literally tastes like chicken. A show stopping display of bright pinks and oranges makes it not only delicious, but incredibly beautiful.
Not only do they resemble lobsters in their vivid coloration, these mushrooms also have a seafood-like flavor and a firm, dense texture, working well in chowders and seafood inspired dishes.
