Before You Grow Mushrooms You Have To Create Soil

CREATING SOIL IS LIKE BAKING A CAKE.

Straw is the flour, cotton seed is the sugar and almond shells are the eggs. The compost needs to “bake” at 180 degrees as it transforms into soil. Sounds easy! Not.

GARY IS THE MUSHROOM MAN.

Gary Crouch and his partner Roberto Ramirez run Mountain Meadow Mushroom Farms in Escondido, CA. Gary is an expert at renewable resources, and mouthwatering mushrooms.

GARY IS LOCO FOR LOCAL

He hand picks local customers like Souplantation who share his values. The mushrooms are delivered within hours of harvest for maximum freshness. To Gary, relationships matter. One taste of his Mushroom soup and you’ll be glad we’re friends with Gary.

FOR YEARS I WAS THE ONLY PERSON IN MY FAMILY THAT LIKED MUSHROOM UNTIL I MARRIED MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND. WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF COOKING TOGETHER FOR MANY YEARS AND OFTEN WITH MUSHROOM.

GLAD TO SEE THIS DELICIOUS SOUP ON THE MENU AND I ENJOYED THE ARTICLE
THANKS

Is there a way to offer mushroom soup regularly or at least get a schedule as to when it will be available at the Stephanie and Warm Springs location in Las Vegas? Thanks! (I know it’s offered right now, but only until Saturday!!!) :(
