By choosing our shiitake mushrooms, you not only savor the deliciousness but also contribute to the enhancement of our forest's health. It's a harmonious cycle that connects you directly with the source of your food while promoting sustainability.

Don't discard the strained liquid—reserve it to impart rich mushroom flavor to your stocks, soups, or sauces.
