Brody Ferguson: Mushroom Farmer

Brody has been growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms for close to 10 years now. He started Ferg's Fabulous Fungi from an 8th grade science project. Now, as one of the most experienced mushroom farmers in the state and youngest commercial grower in the nation, it has been his passion to produce a wide array of the highest quality gourmet mushrooms and mushroom-based products around.

His offerings include Oyster mushrooms, King Trumpet, Chestnut mushrooms, Shiitake, Lions Mane, freeze dried mushrooms, mushroom seasonings, and mushroom grow kits. All of Brody’s products can be purchased at his FarmDeliver store alongside other locally grown farm foods.

If you’ve never cooked with specialty gourmet mushrooms, you’re in for a treat. To unlock medicinal benefits, mushrooms need to be cooked. Just add heat and give them a light sauté or cook them in stir frys, risotto, creamy fettuccine, or over a steak. Cooking mushrooms is always suggested because it cracks open their otherwise indigestible cell walls releasing all of their amazing nutrients and benefits.
