Welcome to The New York Mushroom Company® and thank you for your interest in our farm! As a family business, we are committed to growing and producing the finest organic gourmet mushrooms in Central New York.
As we share our products with you we are continuing the story of Alexander & Stanbury Sweet's 1840 homestead. These pages carry on the story of the land they originally settled...
We promise to deliver only the highest quality mushrooms that we would be proud to serve to our own family. As you enjoy our site and learn about our products, we hope that you will feel as we do, at home. Come visit us at the farm or market and give our ‘fruit’ of the fungi a try.
Our dried mushrooms are preservative free. We never use sulfites or formaldehyde to extend shelf life. Even though these are commonly used substances on imported mushrooms, these chemicals are rarely included in the ingredient list. Our mushrooms don't need these chemicals, they look good on their own.
Simply add our dried whole mushrooms to any recipe that will simmer for 2+ hours. Alternatively cover the dried mushrooms in very hot water for 15 minutes. Strain and use like a fresh mushroom. Reserve the strained water for use in a sauce or stock.
Grown, dried, ground and packaged on the farm. Our Fruit of the forest tea contains organic shiitake, maitake, lion's mane, reishi and a bit of king trumpet for flavor.
A Spring Tradition....
In 2007, our farm began with 300 shiitake logs.
We still supplement what we do with shiitake grown out in the woods. A uniquely dense shiitake high in vitamin D.
We deliver to Central New York. If you prefer or you are outside of our area we can still get fresh organic mushrooms delivered to your door. Everything we send out is grown on our farm so availability can vary.
We are often left with more spent substrate than we can use or compost. This product is pickup only. Our prices are very reasonable.
