Family Owned Mushroom Farm

We're located in sunny Tucson, Arizona, in the heart of the Sonoran desert where every day is paradise.  The Sonoran Desert is an arid region covering nearly 100,000 square miles in southwestern Arizona, southeastern California and Sonora Mexico.  There are very few mushroom farms in Southern Arizona due to the excessive temperatures that reach as high as 120 degrees fahrenheit in the Summer.

 

Because we're local growers in one of the hottest parts of the country we've learned to deal with unique challenges when cultivating and growing specialty mushrooms in commercial quantities. Water and environmental controls are among these challenges and mastering high yield crops in this harsh environment has taken years of preparation, practice and state of the art technology.

 

Some of our oyster mushrooms do quite well in warmer weather while others prefer subterranean conditions with much higher levels of humidity.  We select genus of fungi that are best suited to deal with the higher temperatures of our area and we maintain precise climate controlled facilities, monitored around the clock to ensure optimal growing environments.  Our fruiting, cultivation and inoculation environments are carefully controlled for the correct balance of O2, CO2, humidity and temperature, each specific to the type of crop in production. Unlike random conditions in the wild, commercial mushroom farmers maintain sterile environments with stringent quality controls to ensure a predictable crops.

 

Mastering the harsh desert environment takes a pioneering spirit shared by most folks that call the Old Pueblo home.  Tucson has a proud heritage forged by independent ranchers and farmers that lives on today.  It can be experienced in our culture and in our communities where a mix of multicultural diversity adds flavor to our daily experiences and influences our fare.  It's because our eclectic heritage that we thrive and have earned the designated as a World City of Gastronomy by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). In fact, Tucson is the first city in the United States to receive this prestigious designation.


On our family owned and operated mushroom farm we carry the weight of our community's reputation with us every time we deliver our products to market.  Our focus is always on producing the best quality mushrooms we can grow delivered fresh from our farm to your table. We proudly supply some of the finest chefs and restaurants in Southern Arizona with gourmet mushrooms harvest twice daily, every day of the year.

3.

DRYING MUSHROOMS

Mushrooms have a limited shelf life but are able to store much longer when dehydrated and properly stored. Though most of our products are grown in the communities we serve and delivered fresh daily, we do offer a limited variety of dried and specialty smoked mushrooms upon request and by special order.  You can also dry and preserve mushrooms at home with with dehydrator. Just store in a cool dark place and reconstitute in warm water when your ready to use them.

We use no pesticides or herbicides

Mushrooms take on the flavors and toxins of their environment just like a sponge.  Foragers know that you never pick and eat fungi that's located near busy roads for this reason.  So why risk your health buying mushrooms commercially farmed and shipped from across the country? Unless the mushrooms you're eating are organically grown there's no way of knowing just what's in them.  Getting to know your community farmers and insisting on more locally sourced environmentally sustainable food alternatives reduces your risk of exposure to harmful chemicals and cuts down on carbon emissions generated by excess produce transportation.

 

Safe, all natural oyster mushrooms are rapidly gaining popularity around the world and they're expected to continue replacing common flavorless mushrooms typically found on the shelves of U.S. grocery stores.  As more consumers are learning just what's being sprayed on imported produce responsible grocers are adding organic vegetables and whole foods to their shelves.


If it kills insects, it's not safe to consume. Insist on better health by choosing organic.

Why do the finest chefs choose local?

When you support local farmers your supporting your neighbors and growing our community.  Studies have shown that up to four times more money stays in the local economy when those dollars are spent with local businesses than with national chains.  Great chefs know that their guests have a choice in where they choose to dine.  More than ever patrons expect restaurants to be responsible in sourcing fresh ingredients and to deliver a unique dining experience.  Locally sourced oyster mushrooms are sustainable, easily incorporated with a wide variety of salads and hot dishes and are reliably harvested year around.
