About The Mushroom Broker and Owner of Deep Woods Mushrooms -
Living deep in the Pisgah National Forest, I had access to beautiful hardwood trees. I learned I
would need hardwoods to grow my own Shiitake mushrooms. In addition, I had the perfect
environment to forage for different wild mushrooms regarded as a delicacy by local chefs. My
interest was piqued; my future cemented. Research was key to my knowledge of growing and
foraging for mushrooms. Internet, books and periodicals helped greatly, but my most valuable
information came from people who were experienced in the field. The local Agriculture
Extension Office offered a seminar presented by a number of mushroom experts. The
gentleman who originally turned me on to the mushroom experience I now call my Mushroom
Guru. Another gentleman, a long time member of the Asheville Mushroom Club who has a
business of his own, I call my Mushroom Mentor.
I became educated about the medicinal benefits of
various mushrooms. I learned about
healthy cuisine and began cooking and experimenting
in my own kitchen (and on my own
family). With my increased intake of mushrooms and
mushroom teas, I began to have more
stamina and I felt healthier!
During my hikes, mountain bike rides and
backpacking/camping experiences, I realized that I
now noticed more mushrooms wherever I went. They
were always there, I just never saw them
before! I learned how to host Mushroom Forays so that
I could teach other people how to hunt
mushrooms for their own enjoyment. So, here I am. I
was destined to have a hobby that
mushroomed into a business! I can supply you with or
teach you how to have a steady supply
of Shiitake and wild, edible mushrooms that are
delicious as well as benefit your health.
