Hernshaw Farms Mushrooms
In my most recent order from Turnrow: Appalachian Farm Collective, I purchased a "Medley of Mushrooms" from Hernshaw Farms. This came with shiitake, golden oyster, lion's mane and blue-grey oyster. And, their story is even cooler.
"Hernshaw Farms is a sustainable social enterprise that will have a positive impact on Appalachian communities. We will nurture and transform mine land into beautiful farmland using spent mushroom blocks. And we will provide healthy local food with a purpose. Every time you purchase our mushrooms, you help us turn mineland2farmland. After our mushroom blocks go through their flushes we use them to make compost. Then we use that compost to turn old mineland into farmland."
