About Us

The NM Fungi Urban Mushroom Farm is nested between Albuquerque's Northeast Heights and Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. We proudly offer a seasonal rotation of gourmet and medicinal mushrooms including: Oysters (Black Pearl, Blue, Golden and Pink), Chestnut, Lion's Mane, Pioppino, Shiitake, Enoki and Reishi, all while observing organic growing practices. Our mushrooms are grown in a temperature/humidity controlled indoor fruiting chamber and are picked fresh weekly!

Our Goal: To feed, support and empower our local communities to learn the history, health benefits, & applications of fungi.
