    Stropharia Mushroom Farm


    Not every city can boast about the presence of a gourmet mushroom farm, so consider yourself fortunate.  The Stropharia Mushroom Farm has been described in local magazines, including Gulfshore Life. Click the link for additional information.  

    The owners of Naples-based Stropharia Mushroom Farm will  present the history of their company and explain what is involved in farming mushrooms.   They will also bring some mushroom dishes for you to taste, and show you how to prepare some mushroom delicacies.        

    If you like mushrooms, then you have likely enjoyed some of their products at local Naples restaurants.  You are also encouraged to visit their Naples store (5385 Jaeger Ave) to purchase fresh Lions Mane, Chestnut, Shiitake, Pioppino, and various Oyster Mushrooms.
