We wanted great ingredients to make great food, and the grocery store ingredients just weren't cutting it. We were frustrated with a slim, old selection of mushrooms at the grocery store, and flavorless, "how-the-heck-was-this-raised?" chicken.
That's why we started Honeymoon Farm and Medina Mushrooms.
Gary has been in the mushroom industry for eleven years, he works full time as a commercial mushroom grower. A few years ago, we began bringing a wide variety of these fresh mushrooms right to the farmers market as Medina Mushrooms, providing the freshest and widest variety right to our happy home chefs.
We decided that it wasn't just mushrooms we wanted to cook with, we wanted to raise our own full-flavored chicken.
Normally, the chicken you find in the grocery store is a "production breed" of chicken has been raised in confined chicken houses their whole lives. This production breed, as it turns out, does very well outside on pasture, where they have 24/7 access to grass, bugs, dirt, and sunshine (or rain!). We chose to raise this production breed on pasture, along with a heritage breed, prized for their flavor, and slow grown on pasture to enhance their taste and texture.
We want to invite you to cook great food: to cook with incredible flavor. We know that you're here because you value quality, flavorful, local ingredients, and that's why we're passionate about inviting you into our story.
We can't wait to grow amazing food for you.
We want to be your farmers - your source for the most delicious ingredients.
