Cultivated With Purpose
Our mushrooms are grown naturally on straw, giving them a rich, wild-foraged flavor. After harvest, the straw becomes a nutrient-rich compost for local farms, completing the nutrient cycle in Sacramento. For the Summer 2023 season we're growing Pink Oysters, King Blue, Phoenix, and rotating seasonal varieties.

Meet Your Farmer, Brandon
I started Big Boy Mushrooms in 2020 after falling in love with mycology and recognizing the potential fungi have to rebuild our agriculture industry from the ground up. Big farms have done a great job at feeding our growing population, but it's time we take a step back to find better solutions at the local scale.
Fungi are the foundation upon which the circle of life is built, but are missing from our food pyramid because they don't fit into conventional farming practices. It's going to take new production and distribution models centered around urban farmers to make the change to a more sustainable, health-focused industry.
