Howard Berk & Todd Pittard
Howard Berk and Todd Pittard’s fungi love started years before they knew each other. It was certainly fated that they’d meet at the local farmer’s market, bond over their mutual passion, and start a shiitake and oyster mushroom company. The twosome salvage health, fresh-cut Sweetgum and Oak trees that are on their way to the chipper, and take the logs back to their Chamblee, Georgia shop. Once inoculated with organic mycelium, they’re aged on the farm, to help the fungus develop. Howard and Tood put a lot of love into each log, and the wood gives it back, producing premium, healthy, delicious mushrooms for two or three years. The duo sell them to local restaurants and the lucky public, and now, you can get their inoculated logs and start your own own mushroom garden. They hope you enjoy the fruits of their labor.
