About Us

Haw River Mushrooms has been growing mushrooms since 2012.   Founded by Ches & Laura Stewart, we began by growing mushrooms on logs, then expanded to growing on straw bags hung in a high tunnel.  In 2016, with the support of an $8,000 grant from the Rural Advancement Foundation and the NC Tobacco Trust Fund, we made the leap to becoming full time farmers and built a year-round indoor grow facility in a shipping container.  Each year we've continued to grow, and we have expanded our line-up to include award winning prepared food products including oyster Mushroom Jerky, Lions Mane "Crab" Cakes, Umami Mushroom salts and seasonings, with many more products in the works.  We are grateful to the farmers markets, community members, small restaurants and grocers who have supported our steady growth over the years, and hope to be your go-to place for fungus fun.

Ways to find us:

In person sales: We sell at six farmers markets throughout the triangle, at our on farm stand on Saturdays, and through contactless on-farm pickup via on-line preorders.
