Dedication to Sanitary Harvesting + Packaging

When you buy organic, gourmet mushrooms from R&R Cultivation, you can feel confident that you’re receiving safe, fresh products. Since opening our doors in 2018, we’ve followed a very strict sanitation and cleaning protocol (as required to become USDA certified).

  2. Clean bin is removed from storage, sprayed with alcohol, butcher paper placed inside
  3. Mushrooms are harvested with sterilized knife and placed in bin

  5. This process is repeated until all harvesting is completed
  6. Once harvesting is completed for the day, the grow is rinsed with water
