Bloom bags are our line of grow-at-home mushroom bags. Each bag is carefully crafted with species-selected substrates and inculcated with commercial strains of mushrooms that we fruit at the farm. We offer two sizes of grow bags, a small "baby bloom" that is around 2.5lbs and our large Bloom Bag that is 5lbs. 

 

Chesnut mushrooms (pholiota adiposa) has a unique make-up, so after the cooking process, it maintains a very particular texture, almost crunching even after the chitin walls have been weakened by being cooked. The mild earthy flavor has notes of a peppery finish, and the texture excites an average dish with variation and plays very well in cream sauces. It excels in miso and other brothy soups; or add it to a stir fry or substitute into your favorite sauce recipe.  It can also be seared with garlic and oil or butter and added atop salad or in spring rolls.
