Why we started APN
At Ancient Path Naturals we are sustainable harvesters of medicinal and culinary mushrooms, herbs, and forest naturals, and providers of amazing mushroom growing substrates.
We have been cultivating mushrooms and wild harvesting medicinals for over 40 years. This is what we love and we want to share the amazing benefits with everyone. Many mushrooms have staggering health benefits which western medicine is only just now studying and understanding. The uses and benefits have been known to medical practitioners of the Eastern World for more than 4,ooo (yes, over four thousand years!) Many enhance immunity, sharpen focus, and add energy and vitality. Some mushrooms are vastly superior to “modern” medicine at treating and preventing cancers. The benefits of adding mushrooms (tinctures, teas, powders, however you choose) to your diet cannot possibly be overstated.
APN has always wanted to get more people growing their own mushrooms at home. We’ve hosted mushroom forays and cultivation classes from Washington state to North Carolina and more than a few places in between. The two problems that stop most interested people from beginning to grow is the complexity of methods to learn, and the cost of the materials and equipment. After many years of adjusting mixes and running grow trails many varieties and species, we created BOOM Blocks as an answer to both of those problems.
We love mushrooms, wild things, forest foraged goodies and natural preventative medicine as a regular part of our everyday life. We enjoy sharing the easy and actually do-able methods we have found which everyone can add to their lives.
