Meet the Owner
Riley believes that mushrooms are vital in life's sustainability and have properties that can fight various ailments and diseases. He believes that incorporating a diversity of mushrooms in your diet may lead to longevity and enhance your quality of life. After growing up in Melborne, Florida he attended Florida State University, where he received his Bachelors of Science in Nutrition. It was during this time that Riley came to the realization that food is truly medicine. Post college, he went on to do an herbalist apprenticeship program in Salt Lake City, UT and began to step away from western medicine. Later on while working for Whole Body Department at Whole Foods in California, he was selected to be one of two employees sent to see Paul Stamets speak. This sparked his journey into the fascinating world of mycology. Finally landing in Portland, Riley learned more about foraging and the identification of mushrooms. He did extensive research on mushroom cultivation along with their benefits and started experimenting with the cultivation process. He is passionate about sharing this knowledge with the community and created this business to do so.
