    This tour was very interesting. I learned a lot. The guides were very nice and patiently answered all our questions. The mushroom jerky sample was delicious! It was nice to get a credit at their store afterwards. We drove from Richardson and Dallas and are so glad we did!

    Our family had the wonderful opportunity to tour the Mushroom street farms this fall. It was such an amazing experience! Both my boys 11 and 8 years absolutely loved it!
    The staff is wonderful and very professional and knowledgeable. From start to end the whole process was explained so well. They were also very interactive and we all got to even grow a bag of mushrooms! There was also a very fun contest at the end which was so exciting for the kids! My kids were captivated throughout the whole tour and keep asking to go back! It is such an amazing job they are doing at the Mushroom street farms and we were lucky to get to have such an amazing experience right here in the DFW area. Booking through the delve experience website was also a very easy process and the customer support was wonderful. You do not want to miss this one of a kind experience!

    I’m a mom of two boys, 11yrs and 7yrs old. They love science and nature. We have always been fascinated by mushrooms and one of my kids wants to be a mushroom farmer. When I found out their was an Urban Mushroom Farm 40 minutes away I jumped at the opportunity to check it out. I knew my older son would love it. Mushroom Street Farm did not disappoint. Everyone was so friendly and professional. They were great with kids and their passion for what they do was obvious. The tour took us through the growing process. There were several interactive opportunities and a chance to win a prize. I think it was one of the best days of my 11 year olds life. I highly recommend this tour especially if you love science, mushrooms, farming. It’s a wonderful learning opportunity.
