At "Shrooms 2 Grow:  We Know and Grow mushrooms".  Our primary mushrooms we raise is Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms grown in a natural organic hardwood log method.  We also grow Wine Caps in straw around garden beds and hunt various wild mushrooms when in season. 

Shiitake Mushroom   Lentinula edodes


Shiitake mushrooms are native to Japan, Korea, and China and have been around for thousands of years and are prised for their culnary and medicinal uses.  Shiitake mushrooms have a meaty robust flavor that maintains its plump consistancy when cooked.  Shiitakes can be prepared in many ways, dried, and eaten raw when fresh.  When Shiitakes are dried in the sunlight it absorbs vitimin D and maintains it even when rehydrated.  Shiitakes have been noted for their abilities to enhance the immune system, possess antibacterial properties, reduce platelet aggregation, or possess antiviral properties,,  They lower cholorestriol and is the second most popular alternative medicine used by cancer patients.  Basic research has shown that it increases the body's resistance to pathogens as shown in experiments with the influenza virus, West Nile virus, or bacterial infection.  So as I see it Shiitake mushrooms are a powerful product; not only for dietary reason but for better health.  It is the power food of the future and is the healthy NON-white meat....As it retains its plump meaty texture when cooked.

Oyster Mushrooms
Pleurotus/ vairous species


Oyster Mushrooms are one of the most widely eaten mushrooms with numerous sub species and can be found all over the world.  Oysters grow typically on hard wood trees but can be grown on many different substrates.  Here at Shrooms 2 Grow we grow on hardwood logs in a natural chemical free wood lot.  Like with all mushrooms grown in a natural setting enviromental and weather conditions play a big part to harvesting times.  Oysters seem to do very well in the spring, fall, and early winter.  They have an excellent mushroom flavor and can be used in stir frys, soups, gravy, raw, as the main dish and fried.  They come in various colors and sizes, are a bit more fragil than the Shiitake having a shorter shelf life in the refridgearator.
