2023 MUSHROOM CSA from Wellspring Forest Farm

Mecklenburg, NY

Mushrooms are a delicious and incredibly nutritious food & medicine. We grow mainly oyster, king oyster, lion's mane, shiitake, along with other species on logs from sustainably managed forests and on organic straw and sawdust in our solar-powered growhouse. When available, we also forage and offer chanterelles, chicken-of-the woods, and other wild mushrooms and share them with members.

The mushrooms we harvest are packed with antioxidants, vitamins B &D, Iron and are one of the few foods with a complete amino acid profile. Regular fresh mushroom consumption offers your body a potent “adaptogen” which supports and balances your immune system.


Mushrooms are also the protein source with the lightest ecological footprint. Research indicates that mushrooms emit 0.5 kg of CO2 per pound produced, compared to 3.1 – 5.5kg for meat and 0.9kg for tofu.

**NEW this year: we are joining the Certified Naturally Grown program!**
