Welcome to the CSA!
Fat Moon Farm’s organic mushrooms are known for their freshness, nutrition, uniqueness, and beauty. We can't wait for you to experience the flavor of our gourmet mushrooms. Your purchase supports an independent, female-owned business.
Over the course of the season, you will sample many of these varieties:
Shiitake, Blue Oyster, Yellow Oyster, Chestnut, Lion's Mane, King Trumpets, Black Pearl, and Pioppino
Your mushrooms will arrive in a paper bag, the ideal way to store them. The good news is that by storing them in a paper bag, they have a long shelf life. And if you forget about them and discover they have dried? No problem- you now have dried mushrooms! Find more information about mushroom storage here.

While you wait for first share of mushrooms, here's more about the farm and our founder, Elizabeth Almeida.
Fat Moon Farm:
Elizabeth was eager to begin a farm of her own, but was faced with a challenge: Finding a crop that didn’t require sunlight or a lot of land.
While attempting to solve this puzzle, Elizabeth bought her son a grow-your-own mushroom kit from Wegmans. She looked at the kit and it hit her: "Mushrooms!"
With a YouTube crash course and help from a local mushroom producer, Elizabeth began commercial 'shroom production in 2016.

Elizabeth Almeida has been devoted to food, farming, family, and community throughout her life.
Through her time growing up on a family farm, working for a caterer, researching in a food science lab, and volunteering in Appalachia, Farmer Elizabeth developed a passion for food and environmental justice.
She lives out these values at Fat Moon, where she produces the healthiest mushrooms, recycles waste into a compost for local farms and gardens, and provides jobs for her community.
