Organically Grown Mushrooms as Nature Intended

Chinese Mushroom Growing Regions

It Starts Deep in the Mountains of China

Deep in the mountains of China thousands of small farmers and small industries dedicate themselves to the natural cultivation of mushrooms. These are people who are close to the land and understand that food production is a sacred bond with the earth. In the case of shiitake mushrooms, cultivation started in China in the 12th century. Generations of mushroom growers have maintained a continuous cycle of mushroom cultivation so that today, China is responsible for 85% of worldwide mushroom production.

Are you concerned about mushroom products from China? So are we.

We have worked for 20 years with our Chinese partners to produce products in a sustainable manner without the use of agricultural chemicals. This has allowed us to reach a quality standard that few other companies can meet.
