September is National Mushroom month!

Pennsylvania is the top mushroom producing state, producing 63 percent of mushrooms grown in the U.S.

The majority of Pennsylvania mushrooms are grown in Chester County. Chester County alone produces about half of the mushrooms grown in the U.S. Many farms are located near Kennett Square, nicknamed the “Mushroom Capitol of the World.”
