About Minne Mushrooms!
We are a family-owned, Minnesota-grown, gourmet mushroom farm located in Hugo, Minnesota. We started our production in 2020 and are currently expanding our growth capacities to consistency supply local business and markets with high-quality gourmet mushrooms year-round.
The family owned horse ranch has converted a portion of the barn to a mushroom growth facility that is temperature and humidity controlled for optimal growing conditions.
Who we are:
We are Adam and Marian Bolton, both Minnesota natives and the proud owners of Minne Mushrooms LLC. We have a passion for plants and fungi! We both earned Ph.D's in the fields of plant pathology and plant breeding & genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2019. We have now put our education to use at Minne Mushrooms cultivating a variety of gourmet mushrooms.
Our mission is to make mushrooms a less intimidating and more accessible food source in the everyday diet. Mushrooms also have low carbon production costs and great cooking versatility, making them a great eco-conscious food option!
