Hericium erinaceus "Lion's Mane"
Fungi are essential for bolstering environmental and human health. Fungi Farm exists to support mushroom agriculture and the intelligent use of fungi. Fungi Farm was founded in 2017. Today, Fungi Farm is a family owned business run by Allen Carroll with help from his partner Taylor Hayes.
Allen is a board member of the Alabama Mushroom Society and has cultivated mushrooms for more than 10 years. While studying Crop, Soil, and Environmental Science at Auburn University, Allen conducted research on mycorrhizal fungi and alternative crop development. Allen became interested in combining his love of mushroom cultivation with supporting local, alternative Alabama agriculture, so he built Fungi Farm.
Taylor is a psychiatric registered nurse and founder of the International Association of Psychedelic Nursing. Taylor and Allen fell in love with fungi and each other while in school at Auburn University. She serves as Fungi Farm's "Mushroom Queen" working on product development, social media management, website design, and more. She is excited to fuse psychedelic mushrooms with her healthcare profession via Hope Network Health.
Fungi Farm is located in Dadeville, AL next to the beautiful Lake Martin, 45 minutes from Auburn University. Tours, classes, private events, and consulting are available to those interested in learning more about mushroom cultivation and fungi.
Fungi Farm is a pioneer in the Southeastern mushroom industry offering high quality mushroom spawn, ready-to-fruit blocks, education, and mushroom products. Fungi Farm maintains a culture library of many locally sourced and commercially viable mushroom varieties, in addition to other fungi specifically selected for remediation and pest management purposes. Fungi Farm specializes in mushroom varieties well-suited for production in hot humid regions like the Southeastern United States.
