Mushroom Making

Taking the outside... inside for a family business.

This story is somewhat unconventional for Wild Side, but we believe it has a home here.

A Lavergne Family is purposely growing inside what is normally growing outside…. and they are using natural resources, often wasted, to feed their new bustling business.

Check the links below for more information about their business, as well as unique and interesting ways to prepare mushrooms for meals.

** We also remind you that not all mushrooms are edible so use care and caution if you forage on your own.**
