The farm is a 60,000 square foot growing facility strategically located in the heart of Monterey Bay in Moss Landing. Named after Captain Charles Moss, who established a shipping port in the 1850’s, Moss Landing is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean in the west, Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to the north and east, and farmlands of artichokes, strawberries and mushrooms throughout. Just ninety five miles south of San Francisco, the farm is 1/4 mile from the Pacific Ocean. A steady ocean breeze and northern coastal fog makes it ideal for a consistent outside temperature throughout the year and a perfect location to grow mushrooms. Please note that our farm is not open to the public except on scheduled tour days.
Far West Fungi Farm
Our goal is to provide a year round supply of high quality, organic mushrooms (Shiitake, Tree Oyster, Lions Mane, Maitake, and King Oyster) throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and California. Our family’s mission is to consistently produce quality mushrooms and provide customer service with a high level of commitment and dedication. Quality control is maintained through trained lab technicians who inspect all mushroom spawn to ensure pure mushroom cultures. Skilled care and attention are given to our mushrooms when growing, harvesting, grading and packing for freshness. The farm uses a balance of modern and traditional growing techniques in order to maintain high quality mushrooms while ensuring minimal impact on the environment.
