Mushroom Farming in Michigan

Midnight Harvest Mushroom Farm

Small indoor mushroom farm near Traverse City, MI.  Currently producing Shiitake mushrooms that are sold to local retail and restaurants – come spring of 2020 I’ll be producing upwards of 100+ lbs of fungi per week and also I’ll be diversifying into Maitake and Lionsmane.

Mission

“To sustainably grow high quality gourmet mushrooms and to continue advanced research of other useful and edible fungi”

Find me on Facebook and Instagram if you want to see mushroom farm life.
