Morel madness, more workshop updates, a new affiliate program, and fancy fungi things.

Posted by

It's morel season! The blacks have been up for a few weeks now, with foragers picking them all along the Tennessee Valley. We're just now starting to see the first of the yellows. The season appears to be pretty vigorous, and we're getting some mushrooms in from foragers to sell locally. If you are in the area, and want some land fish, stop on by! We will do .5lb portions for $25 and 1lb portions for $40. Fresh from the woods! If you're just not sure what to do with these, we have some wonderful suggestions for morel mushroom recipes on our  recipe pages. KISS: dredge, batter, fry...


Our spring workshop series continues to roll along, with classes currently offered every other Thursday at 6pm. These fun and casual mushroom experiences are a great way to spend an evening, learning about mushroom cultivation, identification, or just filling your noggin with fun info about fungi. Be sure to check our  Workshops and Events page frequently, as we update with future listings and events. Your spot can be reserved by purchasing a ticket to any listed event. We're particularly excited about the May 1 Workshop when Whitey presents Mushroom Identification 101.

There have also been some wonderful new additions to our catalog, including some beautiful hand made glass mushrooms... both as  bottle stoppers and as decorative additions for tiny terrariums and twig gardens. We've also recently received a fresh shipment of amadou mushroom products from Romania. All hat sizes and styles are back in stock, including the fedora, the homberg, the standard hat (limited supply), as well as the cap with brim. We also received some small scrap pieces of amadou, in various sizes. Some of you may want to play with this, making your own amadou mushroom accessories. Keep in mind this material is fairly fragile, doesn't sew very well, and probably needs testing of various glues. We don't work with it, so we don't know much about it. Experiment away!

We have a feeling some of our customers and readers are active bloggers or maintain websites with mushroom themed content. We're exploring a pilot affiliate program that will pay 10% commission with a 30 day cookie for those interested in hosting links to our web store and product information. If you write mushroom blogs, produce videos, host mushroom themed content, please let us know if you are interested in signing up. Payouts could help generate some decent side income, and you will be providing your readers and viewers an easy and link for them to explore more about mushroom spawn or purchase other mushroom cultivation related gear, books, crafts, etc. Give us a shout by email or phone and we'll be happy to get you on board.
