Meet Our Farmers: Pennybun’s Mushrooms

Pennybun’s Mushrooms

Calgary, Alberta

Pennybun’s Mushrooms is an urban farm founded by Jessica Lypkie and Dirk McCabe in 2015. Both Jessica and Dirk worked in restaurant kitchens for a combined 27 years and noticed a gap in quality gourmet mushrooms in Calgary's culinary scene. In their greenhouse, they specialize in oyster and shiitake mushrooms and source other specialty mushrooms such as morels, porcinis, and chanterelles from select forgers in B.C.

What they grow for us: year-round oyster & shiitake mushrooms, seasonable fiddleheads & specialty foraged foods
