A Fresh Variety of Mushrooms

Medina Mushrooms | Oxford, PA

Are you tired of a boring selection of old, spongy mushrooms at the grocery store?

You've heard about the amazing flavor of mushrooms. You've tried what's available at the grocery store, perhaps tried a few exotic mushroom dishes at your favorite restaurant, but the truth is you really want to experiment with them yourself. Perhaps you're feeling adrift in a sea of mushroom recipes. You feel like you don't even know where to start.

You pick up some white button mushrooms from the grocery store. When you get home, you put them in the fridge, and plan how you're going to to use them in the coming week. Let's say that your plan is to use half of the basket on a salad, and saute the other half to have on a steak later in the week. You cut them up for your salad, but after a few days go by and it's now time to saute them, they're slimy, brown, and rotted!

Imagine picking up a basket of exotic mushrooms, freshly harvested by your farmer, and taking it home to concoct that to-die-for recipe you just saw in “Bon Appetite” magazine?

…Grab that bottle of wine, my friend. We’re about to make dinner really delicious.

Medina Mushrooms

Gary has been working in the mushroom industry for over 11 years. Growing up with a father who was a mushroom farmer, he was practically raised in a mushroom house. Starting by growing exotic mushrooms such as oyster, pioppini, and honey mushrooms on a small scale, Gary now grows over 150,000 lbs of both exotic mushrooms and agaricus mushrooms (the family of white button, crimini, and portobello mushrooms) per week for a large mushroom company based in Southern Chester County.

We first started bringing his fresh mushrooms to market in 2016 under the name "Medina Mushrooms" and we continue to bring them to market today as Honeymoon Farm, so that we can bring you a wider variety of fresh, quality ingredients like poultry and fresh herbs.
