You can find us at local farmers’ markets, where we offer an abundance of fresh and aromatic mushrooms harvested at their peak. We believe in providing our customers with a farm-to-table experience, ensuring that each mushroom is plucked at the perfect moment for optimum flavor and nutrition.

At Fort Fungi, we strive to educate and inspire others about the importance of sustainable farming practices.

ANIMALS

 

At Fort Fungi, our farm is not only a haven for cultivating gourmet mushrooms but also a loving sanctuary for a delightful assortment of animals. We take immense joy in caring for our furry and feathered friends, who play an integral role in our sustainable practices and the vibrant ecosystem we’ve cultivated.

Our alpacas, with their soft and luxurious fleece, grace the pastures with their gentle presence. These majestic creatures not only provide us with wool for crafting beautiful textiles but also contribute their nutrient-rich manure to our farm’s natural cycle.

The goats at Fort Fungi are full of curiosity and mischief. They roam freely, exploring the nooks and crannies of our farm, and their playful antics never fail to bring smiles to our faces. Besides their infectious charm, goats offer their valuable manure, which serves as a vital component in our mushroom substrate production.

Our rabbits are not only adorable companions but also efficient contributors to our sustainable farming methods. Their droppings provide a valuable source of nutrients, enhancing the fertility of our soil and creating an ideal environment for mushroom cultivation.

And let’s not forget our noble horses, whose elegance and grace are a sight to behold. These magnificent animals roam our pastures, offering their manure as a key ingredient in our natural mushroom substrates. The horses at Fort Fungi are not just part of our farm’s ecosystem; they are cherished partners in our quest for sustainable practices.
