The goal of the Portland Mushroom Company is to provide high-quality locally produced oyster mushrooms to the Portland metropolitan area and lead the way in urban mushroom cultivation in the Northwest. The demand for oyster mushrooms is currently met by large agribusinesses located hundreds of miles away. The team’s oyster mushrooms are grown locally on agricultural by-products and urban-generated waste using an innovative cultivation technique that eliminates plastic waste from the operation.
