Connect with your food in a way you never have before.

Take pride in knowing that you actively grew your food, while simultaneously leaping into the vast world of mycology.
Speckled Chestnut grow kits will arrive fully colonized. All you need to do is open the perforated window, cut an "X" against the block with a sharp knife, and mist the mushrooms three times daily with the spray bottle provided! Watch your mushrooms grow from tiny pins to large, beautiful flushes. Chestnut has a completely unique flavour. They are nutty, full of umami, and have delicate caps and earthy, crunchy stems. Chestnut mushrooms have higher copper, protein, and potassium levels than the medically prized Shiitake mushroom. They have been used in traditional Chinese Medicine to cure headaches, fevers, and fatigue.
