Our philosophy

We strive to grow the best quality gourmet mushrooms in a sustainable and organic matter, while making it available to the local community. Here at South Florida Fungi, we believe that everyone should have access to specialty mushrooms AND the education behind them. We’re obsessed with the health benefits for immunity, energy, and longevity that have been studied for centuries, and want to help you learn all about the Mushroom kingdom.

Our story

Beyond Mushrooms, we believe in integrated systems of Agriculture that mimic that of a natural Environment. It all began with South Florida Fresh, an account you can follow on Instagram (@Southfloridafresh) which showcases our small family farm and other local farms in South Florida. We have been passionate about Agriculture for a long time, and now obsessed with all things Mushrooms! We are excited to share this journey with all our customers and followers!
