Additional Information on the farm:

John's involvement with mushrooms began in 1977 while working for the City of San Francisco on the Police Officers' Association Gym in Hunter's Point shipyard.
There he met a man who grew mushrooms, with whom he eventually became partners in a business called Miracle Mushrooms. In 1987, John and Toby partnered with Jim Hammond, who started Hazel Dell Mushrooms in his garage in 1980. By 1990, consumer demand for exotic mushrooms necessitated a move out of the garage, and the business relocated into a decommissioned White Button cultivation facility in Watsonville.
That facility is now home to Far West Fungi.
