Possum Bottom Farms offers farm fresh gourmet mushrooms year round to grocery markets, restaurants and area farmers markets. We cultivate 39 strains of gourmet culinary mushrooms including multiple strains of shiitake, maitake, mukitake, enokitake, nameko, stropharia, oyster, chestnut, Lion's Mane and Combtooth, and the medicinal varieties reishi, cordyceps and turkey tail. Our processes are 100% organic from start to finish using locally obtained agricultural waste products, such as wheat straw, sawdust, wood chips, and logs. We maintain all of our cultures in our onsite lab, and we produce our own seed spawn onsite, insuring absolute quality control of our products. Some mushroom strains are seasonal, some are grown year round in controlled environments. So, all varieties may not be available at any one time, but we usually have 8-10 varieties of mushrooms available every week, year round. We strive to pick and deliver to your restaurant or grocery market the same day, giving you and your customers the freshest mushrooms available by far. We pick and offer our fresh mushrooms to our farmers market customers in hours, not days! The only way you can get mushrooms fresher than ours is to grow them yourself! In addition to fresh mushrooms we offer fresh ground shiitake and oyster mushroom powder. Our powders are a nutrition packed flavor-packed addition to eggs, soups, stews, cooked meats and fish. They're also a wonderful sauce and stew thickener (works better than flour or corn starch) or anytime you want mushroom flavor, but not necessarily mushroom texture.
If you'd like to try our mushrooms you can find them in fine dining establishments all around Chattanooga, Sewanee, Monteagle, and Signal Mountain such as St. John's Restaurant, Kenny's Southside Sandwiches, Octo-pi, Hummingbird Pastaria, and many others. You can also find our fresh mushrooms for sale at Pruett's Signal Mountain Market in Signal Mountain, and Bread & Butter Artisan Bakery in Red Bank. Our fresh mushrooms, mushroom powders, home fruiting kits and pre-inoculated mushroom producing logs are available every Wednesday, year round at the Main Street Farmers Market at Findley Stadium in downtown Chattanooga, 4:00PM - 5:00PM (winter hours), and at the Nashville, TN, and Franklin, TN farmers markets every Saturday starting at 9:00AM. Taste the difference fresh makes!
