More Mushrooms Please!

Posted by

Mushrooms are delicious, nutritious, and satisfying. We, as mushroom farmers and fungi lovers, want to encourage you to incorporate more mushrooms into your diet. 

Mushrooms get classified as vegetables in the food world but really belong to a family all of their own, a family that offers a distinctly gourmet, earthy goodness to your daily meals. We’re big mushroom fans around here and for good reason!

  • Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin D which is crucial to many aspects of human health. Everyone in the Northwest could benefit from some more vitamin D in their lives! 
  • In addition to Vitamin D, mushrooms also contain calcium, the very nutrient that vitamin D helps you absorb. 
  • Other valuable nutrients include, protein and B vitamins, specifically niacin. 

The list keeps going, as mushrooms also contain natural insulin and enzymes that help break down sugars and starches in other foods. They are high in antioxidants and truly medicinal. Mushrooms are low in calories and loaded with essential nutrients. We are here to provide you with high quality, organic mushrooms all year, let’s get them from our farm to your plate today!
