Our farm is located in Morro Bay, California. We grow fresh gourmet mushrooms for local residents and restaurants along the California Central Coast.
The natural ocean air and mild weather is ideal for growing a variety of oyster mushrooms. We fruit them in humidified greenhouses, harvesting in early morning the same day we sell them at the farmer's market.
Our cultivation technique is incredibly low impact. We don't use fertilizer or pesticides. Any leftovers are pure, compostable material. All our paper products are recycled.
Hericium erinaceus, Lion's Mane, is also known as the hedgehog mushroom and somewhat unusual in appearance. It can be identified by its long spines (greater than 1 cm length), occurrence on hardwoods, and tendency to grow a single clump of dangling spines. Native to North America, Asia and Europe, this unique mushroom is commonly found during late summer into the autumn. It grows on hardwoods in the wild, particularly American beech trees.
Pleurotus ostreatus var columbinus, the Blue Oyster mushroom is a sub species of the Pearl Oyster that exhibits a notable blue-gray hue. The color contrast between the darker caps and pale gills give them a truly stunning appearance. Native to Western Europe, the Blue Oyster thrives in cooler temperatures.
Pleurotus djamor, commonly known as the pink oyster mushroom, is a species of fungus in the family Pleurotaceae. It was originally named Agaricus djamor by the German-born botanist Georg Eberhard Rumphius and sanctioned under that name by Elias Magnus Fries in 1821.
Pleurotus citrinopileatus, the golden oyster mushroom, is an edible gilled fungus. Native to eastern Russia, northern China, and Japan, the golden oyster mushroom is very closely related to P. cornucopiae of Europe, with some authors considering them to be at the rank of subspecies.
The pearl oyster mushroom is one of the most common of the oyster mushrooms used by chef's world wide. This species is wide spread throughout the world and throws off various sub strains including the Blue Oyster Mushroom (pleurotus columbinus). The pearl oyster has a nice, pearly white color which tends to darken as the mushroom matures. Also the more light introduced, the more white pearly color the caps will become.
