Northwood Mushrooms grows organic shiitake and other specialty mushrooms. We grow most of our mushrooms on logs and a few in-ground. You can find our shiitake and other culinary and medicinal mushrooms in Twin Cities groceries, restaurants, farmers markets, and through several CSAs.

  2. Hi, I am stoked that you are doing your thing around here, and hope to take your class May 4th…
    I am starting a Pirate-themed cookie company to be based primarily in Minneapolis…who knows…a mushroom cookie is a possibility!

    1. I would try adding powdered reishi mushrooms in a cookie, since they are such a healthful mushroom, and there is certainly precedent for reishi and chocolate together. I don’t have any growing yet, but I hope to have some by the fall.

      1. I just made some reishi brownies with powdered reishi. You can’t really taste the reishi, but they have all the great benefits of the mushroom! I put it in hot cocoa too.

  3. Just received a log for Mother’s Day and soaked it with Plymouth city water from my hose which I assume is chlorinated. Does that mean it will NOT produce mushrooms?? I am excited to try this again. Did it a number of years ago at Eagle Bluff ELC in Lanesboro, MN area.

    1. Chorinated water can inhibit mushroom growth, but I’ve successfully soaked and grown mushrooms in Minneapolis – which uses some chlorine in its water. I don’t know how Lanesboro water is different from Minneapolis’, but I’d say you have a fair chance. Good luck!

  4. Dear Mr. McAdams,

    My name is Tomonori Ebisawa from Japan. I have been living in the U.S. for over 20 years. Recently I watched a Japanese TV show inviting you to Japan. I’m quite impressed by your passion toward Shiitake mushrooms!! I have been looking for REAL Shiitake mushrooms grew on the real wooden logs!! My grandmother used to take me to her Shiitake farm and fed me the real Shiitake when I was a child. Your Shiitake mushrooms make me feel so nostalgic!!

    I just saw your dried Shiitake mushrooms. Impressive, Sir!! Do you sell only one size? I’m wondering if you are selling a larger size? If so, would you tell me the price for a larger bag?

    It’s getting much cooler here in Florida. I miss any Japanese Nabemono dinner with Shiitake!!

    Sincerely,
    Tomonori Ebisawa

    1. Thanks so much for your comment and question. We do sell dried mushrooms in larger packages, but in general we don’t ship orders. I’ll let you know if we change that policy, or if we can make an exception. At this point our price is $5 per ounce – for pickup at the farmers market. best, Jeremy

      1. Thank you very much!! That’s truly awesome!! If you are going to change your shipping policy, please let me know how to make a payment such as Credit card, PayPal or maybe Money Order? I have talked to my children about your REAL Shiitake mushrooms!! They are quite excited as I am. I am truly glad that you could visit Japan and met the legend of Shiitake in Ooita Prefecture.

        Sincerely,
