ABOUT MYCOTERRA: Mycoterra Farm is located in the woodlands of Westhampton MA. Julia, Mycoterra Farm’s founder and owner, has been a mycology enthusiast for many years. With a passion for growing things and wanting to grow a business of her own, she decided a mushroom farm would be an excellent complement to the Pioneer Valley’s robust local agricultural economy. Buying Mycoterra mushrooms or signing up for our Mushroom Club Card keeps your dollar local and supports local farming and sustainability. Mycoterra mushrooms are handcrafted in small batches and picked fresh for delivery. We take pride in producing diverse varieties of quality gourmet mushrooms. We grow more than just mushrooms. We strive to leave the planet better than we found it. Using agricultural and forestry byproducts as our primary growing mediums, our natural methods of production accelerate decomposition, building soil and cycling nutrients – critical processes for healthy ecosystems. We use our exhausted substrates as soil amendments on our farm to help restore an old gravel bank, prevent erosion and to build organic matter in our annual and perennial garden beds.
