Jane Maguire and John Quigley are the masterminds behind the company with one word that is sure to make you smile – shrooms. The East End Mushroom Company is the premier grower and purveyor of the finest mushrooms on the East End of Long Island, New York. Magical in their own right, this family-owned and operated farm offers locally grown mushrooms to restaurateurs and consumers alike from their location in Cutchogue into the five boroughs of New York City.
The East End Mushroom Company was founded in October 2012 with a mission of growing mushrooms, specifically the Shiitake, Maitake, and Blue Oyster varieties, and offering them to everyone from famed local chefs to enthusiastic home cooks. Grown in a state of the art facility, mushrooms are picked daily to ensure incomparable freshness. Jane and John can be found at the farm Thursday through Saturday, and at the various farmers markets on the North Fork. Inspired by the local food scene, they saw a need for a farm that hadn’t previously existed on the East End. Surrounded by boundless agriculture, the couple decided to start growing mushrooms and open their own farm. Since opening, Jane and John have seen much success in distributing to restaurants across New York, as well as their retail store at the Cutchogue farm.
