At the Far West Fungi storefront, customers can choose from pre-activated shitake or tree oyster mushroom mini-farms, each of which produces a guaranteed first crop. Shitake farms are ideal for indoor growing, producing up to one and half pounds of mushrooms over a four to five month period. Tree oyster mini-farms can grow in warm climates and produce one to two pounds of mushrooms, which can each reach the size of 3.5 inches in diameter, over a two-month growing period. With care, each farm can produce an additional two to three harvests.
Far West Fungi
The Garrone family, now in its fourth generation, has been selling their homegrown organic mushrooms at Bay Area farmers’ markets for over fifty years. Proudly keeping the tradition alive, they ship orders in from their own 60,000-square foot farm in Monterey Bay, where the steady ocean breeze and northern coastal fog preserve ideal growing conditions.
In addition to filling up market stands, they stock their storefront operation, Far West Fungi, with 42 varieties of mushroom. They also line the shelves with exotic food products such as saffron tagliatelle, truffle honey, domestic fennel pollen, and Tahitian vanilla bean. Here, customers can load up on specialty mushrooms in person or opt for next day air delivery via the online shop. The internet store also allows shoppers to peruse all manner of truffle-related products, including oils, sauces, and oversized foam fingers that read “down with morels”.
