- Oyster mushrooms are one of the most widely eaten mushrooms in the world.
- They are popular for cooking, torn up instead of sliced, especially in stir fry or sauté, because they are consistently thin, and so will cook more evenly than uncut mushrooms of other types.
- We produce NO-GMO and natural oyster mushrooms year round and they are 100% born & produced in Gainesville Georgia using reusable plastic bottles.
