Mushrooms

Mushrooms have long been an underappreciated food, however these days they are growing in popularity because of their health benefits as well as the diversity they provide in different cuisines.
We are happy to share here at Forage Hill Farm we will be growing mushrooms. We are starting with two different types: Chestnut and Nameko.

Chestnut Mushrooms

These mushrooms are native to Europe, and also known as cinnamon cap mushrooms are a parasitic, hardwood-loving species found growing in clusters on living trees and decaying or rotting wood.

Nameko Mushrooms

These mushrooms originated in Asia and are less well known here in the States, and also grow on logs like Chestnut and Shiitake mushrooms.

In Keeping With Our Mission to Produce Healthy Foods, Mushrooms Fit This Bill

Although considered a vegetable, mushrooms are neither a plant nor animal food. They are a type of fungus that contains a substance called ergosterol, similar in structure to cholesterol in animals. They are rich in B vitamins (B2, B3, folate, B5), Phosphorus, Vitamin D, Selenium, Copper and Potassium. and have also been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.
