Misty Dawn Farm is a log grown Shiitake mushroom farm located in Stoughton Wi. Our mushrooms are grown on logs sustainably harvested from our forests as part of our forest improvement plan. Ingrid West started Misty Dawn Farm in 2014 in response to the Managed Forest Law program that required that our woods in Vernon County be harvested. Our forests are managed for watershed protection, wildlife enhancement and biodiversity so the trees we do harvest are carefully selected and harvested with care.
Our log grown Shiitakes are different then commercial sawdust grown Shiitakes that are grown indoors. We grow a range of Shiitake strains from March through November on a variety of tree species in outdoor conditions. We believe this gives our shiitakes a robust texture and flavor as well as creating a beautiful healthy mushroom.
Our current markets include: local restaurants interested in Farm to Table dining, the Saturday Stoughton Farmers market, CSA’s and direct sales to individuals.
