Growing up playing and foraging in the woods of rural Michigan, founder Owen Rice acquired a taste for morels as a child. This passion for the distinctive flavors of locally available wild and specialty foods followed him to the mountains of Oregon, where he founded Mycological Natural Products, a company dedicated to bringing gourmet edible mushrooms and other fruits of the forest to consumers and chefs, in 1995.

Today, Mycological has expanded its product offerings to include dried chiles and additional wild and organically grown specialty food ingredients.
