Jeremy McAdams launched Cherry Tree House Mushrooms in 2009, a mushroom farm that provides log-grown mushrooms to the Twin Cities. CTHM started in many residential yards in south Minneapolis but has recently moved to a new farm in Clayton, WI. Read more about our history.
Logs used by CTHM for cultivation are sustainably-harvested nearby, our mushrooms are certified organic, and our mushroom foods use primarily certified organic ingredients.
Why logs? There are many ways that mushrooms grow, from button (agaricus) mushrooms on compost to shiitake on logs to morels, which grow on woody soil. I use logs to grow mushrooms since we have fairly abundant sources of trees in the upper Midwest, logs produce high quality mushrooms, and because they don’t require the high input of energy required in many mushroom operations to sterilize compost, straw, or the other products used to cultivate mushrooms. With fuel resources becoming more and more scarce, I believe mushroom cultivation like this or foraging are the most sustainable. See more about my mission to do no harm.
CTHM sells its high quality shiitake and other culinary and medicinal mushrooms through Twin Cities groceries, restaurants, farmers markets, and through several CSAs. Usually in the spring Jeremy gives mushroom cultivation workshops, whose dates are published on the calendar. You can also take a look at the mushroom cultivation page, which gives some pointers on cultivation for the beginner.
Thanks for your interest in high quality organic mushrooms!
