Eat Flowers Farm - Outdoor Mushroom Project

On our farm in Accord, NY we aim to mimic nature. If we can create an efficient system that has productivity and regularity with the least amount of energy input and disruption to the ecosystem, we all win. Our goal is to provide delicious, nutrient dense food for our local community, and to be a resource for others looking to learn.

Early Shiitake Log Inoculations at Eat Flowers Farm

Our Story

Eat Flowers Farm was founded by Kaya Stuart on the main principle of providing nutritious and delicious food for her local community and beyond. We hope to emanate a vision of conscious land use, and strive for sustainability in all that we do. In November of 2021 we started our (planned) exploration and expansion into outdoor mushroom cultivation, with the help of Luke Sarrantonio (Degree in Forest Biology and 12+ years of outdoor mushroom cultivation). The farm is growing quickly, we will reach 1000 logs with season's inoculations (Spring 2024). We grow mostly Shiitake, but are developing projects to work more with Reishi, Maitake, Laetiporus, Nameko and others! We offer educational farm tours and workshops in the beautiful forest setting of our mushroom yard. We would love to hear from you!

Land Acknowledgment

We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we live and work is the ancestral home of the Munsee Lenape tribe. We are not native to this region and consider ourselves temporary stewards of the land. We acknowledge the unfathomable pain and suffering of indigenous peoples on this continent and throughout the world. We acknowledge the immense amount of pain and suffering day-to-day, and throughout history.  We acknowledge the past and strive to build a better future for all.
