The Imaginary Farmer produces innovative mushroom growing kits, spawn, and supplies. We make our kits using locally- and regionally-produced materials. Our mushrooms include our own strains of species native to our farm and neighborhood in the Chenango River Valley of Central New York. We began marketing our first locally-native oyster mushroom strain, Hantana Phoenix(TM), in early 2010.

Through our kits, educational materials, and events we promote mushroom growing using highly sustainable, locally-appropriate techniques, as one part of a permaculture food production system. By promoting the growth and consumption of locally-native gourmet and medicinal mushrooms we hope to expand the range of food crops that can be sustainably and profitably grown in our region - and to share the pleasure of growing and consuming these little-known native mushrooms.
