Grand Prairie Mushrooms is a small indoor gourmet mushroom cultivation facility located south of Wellington, Kansas. We grow a variety of mushrooms using biodegradable bags with an emphasis on organic practices and substrate health!
We were inspired to educate ourselves on the uses of fungi and the pivotal role mushrooms play in the overall health of people and our planet. Participating in the mushroom experience is fun and amusing while we continually learn the mycelium process.
We are currently working on empowering newcomers by creating home Mushroom Growing Kits. Mushroom Growing Kits will provide an opportunity for self-education and produce a truly superior fresh food which will be healthy and fun for the whole family. How many flushes can you get out of one grow kit? Spent mushroom substrate is also fantastic for the environment and is a great compost!
Our desire for this land is that it would flourish. We believe that to do this we must listen to the land—its history, watershed, topography, vegetation and creatures—on their own terms, asking questions and listening to what each have to communicate. We believe that this kind of relational listening will lead to healthy ecosystems.
We do not use any herbicides or pesticides or synthetic fertilizers on our farm. We are currently classified as organically grown and we are moving towards organic certification but we want to do even better than that. We seek to cultivate soil that is alive and well, utilize carbon sequestering practices, and increase the diversity of our plant friends and local creatures.
Mostly we love to see land, bodies and communities whole. We believe that the health of our bodies and communities is intricately connected to the health of our land.
