Mystic Mountain Mushrooms Storybit
Mystic Mountain Mushrooms
Grand Lake, Colorado
Mystic Mountain Mushrooms began in 2020 as a dream to bring healing and harmony to an unbalanced world. Sherry McGann discovered the health benefits of mushrooms and plant-based medicine during her journey to recovery from a severe case of whooping cough.
When the pandemic hit in early 2020, Sherry decided it was time to nurture her dream. She brought together a group of fellow mushroom-lovers across Colorado and built a farm in her very own garage. The business now consciously cultivates culinary and medicinal mushrooms for customers across Colorado.
Brown's Place Farm
After 25 years of traveling with the military, WB and Lynn planted themselves on a 20-acre lot just outside of Augusta, Georgia. They decided to dedicate their retirement to providing organic vegetables to their local community and Brown's Place Farm was born.
"A farmer takes more chances than any profession. There are times when you plant and things don't turn out quite as you want too that's a disappointing thing. It's a good feeling when things go right. Out here I'm my own boss. I just love this place and that's my joy. " -W.B. Brown.
