The Mushroom Hut @ Fox Farms
We were excited to be asked to be part of this years' Mother Earth News Fair. We will be doing workshops in the Modern Homesteading category...Flower Essence Jellies and Tapping Maple Trees using Sumac Spiles. We are using our on-farm kitchen facility to hold "Food Business" classes! We now offer (in season) heirloom Bloody Butcher cornmeal we are grinding. We also offer Farm Fresh jellies! We are growing our own Cascade Hops and making Hops Flower Jelly! Follow us on Facebook (Susan Tipton-Fox and The Mushroom Hut @ Fox Farms) and view our farm photos. Each year we try to diversify into a more sustainable farm and way of life. We have a dairy goat farm where all the animals are treated humanely! We offer "Animal Feed" goats' milk and cheese (when milking). We will also be offering informative workshops through Mayland (Yancey Campus) and on-farm workshops on keeping and taking care of goats, making cheese, growing Shiitake Mushrooms and more. We offer in-season produce and berries. We want to offer a naturally grown product. We are also Seed Savers. We use natural fertilize/compost from the farm for the gardens, we offer pollinator/beneficial insect habitats to encourage natural pest management and increase fruit/produce production. We use cover crops and crop rotation. We have Shiitake mushrooms grown naturally on logs. We offer Mountain/Native American crafts (drums, dreamcatchers, corn shuck dolls, hand-made forged knives, goats' milk soap, hand-made necklaces from local stone found here on the farm, hand-made tiles and more. You can find our products at our online store through localharvest.org
Our store is open from May to November.
