If you’ve had our pates and butters, you love them! They make great gifts and are also perfect for parties. We’re offering a few different sampler boxes for anyone who wants to stock up for the upcoming holidays. Our pates and butters freeze beautifully, so have no worries about needing to eat them up right… Continue reading Mushroom Pate and Butter Flights
Hmm, “volunteers” usually means mushrooms, but in this case it means actual people! Last weekend we welcomed several folks to the farm to help with various projects. We picked some apples, filled all the holes in the shade structure (yay!), picked some mushrooms, and moved some logs. It was fun to have several folks out… Continue reading Volunteers!
We haven’t had an open house or anything on the farm for quite a while. It’s time for that to change! We’ll be hosting several volunteer days throughout the month of September. Come on out to the farm for a tour, see what we’re up to, enjoy some sort of mushroom meal, and help us… Continue reading Volunteer Days!
I wrote about our log soaking last year and shared a video of the new system. As I said then, it would get much faster once everyone got used to the new system. After a whole season of learning tips and tricks last year, this process has gotten much faster and easier. Here’s a video… Continue reading Soaking logs
Cherry Tree House Mushrooms. It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue (well, unless you’re us and you’ve been saying it for 9 years). We’ve heard, and answered to, a lot of variations over the years: Cherry Treehouse Mushrooms Cherry Tree Mushrooms Cherry Mushrooms Treehouse Mushrooms Besides being long and a bit unwieldy, the name hasn’t… Continue reading What’s in a name?
We had a lot of “before and after” on the farm this last week. As I mentioned last week, we got a start on turning all of that cut wood from last year into firewood. Jeremy thinks he got through maybe 1/3 of the pile of wood. There is a LOT of firewood! Last… Continue reading Before and After
Mmm, it is the season for soup and for wild rice. This recipe sounds amazing… but I have to be honest: I ran out of time this week and didn’t get to make a batch. I have no pictures to show you how yummy it looks! You really can’t go wrong with wild rice, broth,… Continue reading Recipe: Wild Rice and Shiitake Stew
Another fun way to eat shiitake! Jeremy says spring rolls are just a vehicle for eating peanut sauce, and I can’t argue with that. But if you can’t eat peanuts – don’t worry. The sauteed shiitake are so tasty – especially if you saute them till they’re just a bit crispy on the edges –… Continue reading Recipe: Shiitake Spring Rolls
Confession time: We have a TON of mushroom recipes (as you might imagine) and when I started up this little weekly update I planned out what recipes I’d share each week. I’ve been looking forward to this week for a while, which is designated “shroom + bruschetta” week. For recipes we don’t have pictures for… Continue reading Recipe: Mushroom and Chevre Bruschetta
This is the time of year when the mushrooms really start going crazy. The temperatures and humidity are just right and the mushrooms are extra happy. It’s also when we first start to see the fruits of our labor in the spring (pun intended!) Jeremy was giving a tour of the farm a few days… Continue reading Abundance
