The Power of Fungi

The mushrooms grown at Piney Woods Farm are all in the classification known as decomposers. These mushrooms are also highly prized as edible-gourmet food for the table. We use the decomposer mushrooms as part of the process in making compost on the farm along with fresh wood chips. The mushrooms themselves are harvested and will be available for sale seasonally.

Mushroom House & Trail In the old-growth forest is Piney Woods Farm’s walkable Mushroom Trail. Presently, four types of mushrooms can be found there: Wine Caps (King Stropharia), Shiitake, Oyster, and Nameko. These mushrooms are for observational and educational purposes! Our Mushroom House is where we prepare the logs for the Shiitake Mushrooms and other fun fungi!
