The Farm

Nature is such a beautiful thing but not its surprises. Our mushrooms are grown and packed in a controlled and fully automated indoor environment while mimicking the ideal conditions present in their natural habitats. This method eliminates natural threats such as adverse weather and competitors but still allows us to produce succulent mushrooms all year!

We are located beside the Blue Ridge Mountains, just outside historical Appomattox Virginia. Our facility was built just for growing mushrooms and other indoor produce.

Grown By Veterans, Supporting Veterans

We provide jobs for those who serve but now need some space to heal or just want to serve others.

These Aren't Your Average Mushrooms

“Humans only use 10% of their brain, and if you could unlock the other 90% you’d be unstoppable.” This is a fairly common theme, usually in movies showcasing people who become superhuman by finding the full potential of their brain." 

Lions Mane, part of the Hericium genus of mushrooms, won’t make you into a superhuman. It is, however, known for its ability to boost your brainpower. In most of the movies involving unlocking the mind, increased focus and concentration are the first improvements people notice, followed by better memory retention. These are some of the benefits that Lions Mane is known for.

Anxiety and depression, which are sometimes debilitating, hold many people back in life. The medications don’t always work and have some staggering possible side effects, but people have been getting some relief with Lions Mane. To top it off, promising studies have shown that even neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Parkinson’s, maybe eased by eating meals with Lions Mane regularly due to its ability to repair damaged brain cells.

Comb Tooth and Bears Head are close cousins to Lions Mane and have many similarities. In fact, while there aren’t any poisonous look-alikes for the Hericiums, they are often hard to tell apart and confused for each other. As such, while Comb Tooth and Bears Head haven’t been studied as much as Lions Mane, it’s reasonable to think they may share the beneficial properties as well.
