R&R Cultivation is dedicated to working toward a culture that cares where its food comes from. As a society, we have become increasingly distanced from our food with most people not eating food at all but rather eating food like substances. R&R Cultivation is beginning this journey by being a local grower of many different types of mushrooms including shiitake, oyster, lion's mane, and many others. As they grow and scale, they will continue to strive to do their part to fulfill their mission and inspire others to live happier and more sustainable lives.
Owner Nick Robinson is a Twin Cities native with a passion for growing fresh, gourmet mushrooms. After getting married in 2012 Nick lived in Shanghai, China for 3 years and visited 12 different countries to explore more of what the world had to offer. After returning home, he started finding ways to give back to his community in a local and meaningful way. After working in education for 3 years and serving on a school board, he was drawn into the world of sustainable living and urban farming through his friend, Lance Ramm. This was where the idea for R&R Cultivation began.
