About Us:
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.
