Far West Fungi farm is located in a 60,000 square foot growing facility strategically located in Moss Landing in the heart of Monterey Bay. Moss Landing is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west, Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to the north and east, and farmlands of artichokes and strawberries throughout. The farm is 1/4 mile from the Pacific Ocean, where a steady ocean breeze and northern coastal fog make it ideal for a consistent outside temperature throughout the year and a perfect location to grow mushrooms.
Far West Fungi started in 1982 as a mail order supply company and today provides a year round supply of exotic, certified organic specialty mushrooms at local markets, including Shiitake, Tree Oyster, Lions Mane, Maitake, and King Oysters. The farm uses a balance of modern and traditional growing techniques to produce high quality mushrooms while ensuring minimal impact on the environment.
