Fresh gourmet and medicinal mushrooms
Matt’s Mushroom Farm started as an undergraduate project of founder Matthew Fien Gretton, back in the lush countryside of Upstate New York. Always interested in intersection of food production and science, Matt took a few courses in mycology at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY. In his senior year, he developed a business plan for growing mushrooms on agricultural wastes and pitched it at a Syracuse U competition. Matt was able to win $10,000 of prize money and produce a prototype of his idea, and so the first iteration of Matt’s Mushrooms was born.
“Mushrooms are a crucial but oft-forgotten piece of our natural world.”
— MATTHEW FIEN GRETTON, FOUNDER
A large ribbon mixer is used to prepare mushroom substrate.
Matt eventually moved to New Mexico and nursed his project along through several major life and career changes. In 2019, he was given the opportunity to purchase some equipment that would enable him to move from hobby- to commercial-scale production. Matt established a business relationship with Jesse Kalapas, an entrepreneur and local food advocate, to set up his farm near the beautiful Casa Rondeña Winery in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Farm is now moving forward with its first season of production.

Albuquerque has a thriving local food scene. What it doesn’t have is a strong mushroom grower, with a consistent supply of varied, high-quality gourmet and medicinal fungi. Matt’s Mushroom Farm aims to use the waste products of various Albuquerque businesses to provide food and medicine for the local community, as well as compost and myco-inoculant products to enhance the production of local organic growers.
