Welcome to Blue Oyster Cultivation

image Blue Oyster Cultivation is a family-owned gourmet mushroom farm located in beautiful Ithaca, New York. Our head cultivator, Joseph Rizzo, worked many seasons with his family's farm in the New York City Greenmarkets. After finishing college, he spent several years teaching botany and life science to inner-city middle school children in Brooklyn. Now, Joseph brings his botanical skills to Central New York where he is committed to creating a sustainable, agro-ecological model using oyster mushrooms as the centerpiece.

We sell farm fresh gourmet mushrooms such as shiitakes and oysters at farmer's markets throughout the Finger Lakes region. We also offer premium mushroom products such as dried mushrooms, teas and grow-your-own mushroom kits.

We cater to customers who know what they want in a fungus. Our mushrooms are not only delectible but beautiful as well. They're (almost) too pretty to eat! Here at Blue Oyster Cultivation we pride ourselves on growing the best mushrooms money can buy.
