Mycopia Gourmet Mushrooms was founded in 1977 in Sebastopol, CA. They grow seven varieties of organic specialty mushrooms including Alba Clamshell, Brown Clamshell, Trumpet Royale, Forest Nameko, Velvet Pioppini, Nebrodini Bianco, and Maitake Frondosa. Mycopia Gourmet Mushrooms is committed to sustainable agriculture. Their products are certified organic and are grown in reusable bottles on oak shavings, a waste product from lumber mills. The spent substrate is composted and returned to the land as a desirable soil amendment for local farmers. This is a model for low-impact farming that contributes to the economic and nutritional health of the area, while having a positive impact on the environment, as well as a delicious impact on menus.
