Nestled in the Ozark Mountains of Southern Missouri, Willow Mountain Mushrooms has been providing Naturally Grown Gourmet Mushrooms since 2004.
Using only Natural means and our exclusive plant based compost to grow our mushrooms we maintain a high quality mushroom FULL of natural flavor not chemicals.
While other producers concentrate on a long shelf life by using chemicals.
Why "Naturally Grown"?
After Bob had worked for the large corporate factory mushroom farms for over 20 years we decided as a family to start a small farm of our own.
One of the first decisions that we made was that we would not use the synthetic fertilizers and non-organic (and most that are considered organic) insecticides during our growing. We even try to get organically produced materials for our composting whenever possible. With not using these chemicals we have lower yields. However, what we loose with yields we make up for in flavor and quality as well as shelf life.
We have had many of our customers tell us that, "I have never had a button mushroom that has had flavor and your mushrooms have Flavor!" Also, "I can't believe how long your mushrooms last in the refrigerator. I had a package in there that I forgot about and it was still good after more that two weeks!" Now, while we are thrilled that the mushrooms stayed so fresh for so long we do tell our customers that they should be eaten within 10 to 14 days ~ at which the reply is, "They won't last a day in our house!" (with a big smile!)
It makes us feel good that so many people, even former anti-fungus eaters, enjoy our mushrooms. We work very hard to produce a quality mushroom that is 'clean' ~ for the environment, our family and our customers.
