Our Mission

Provide the world with fresh, safe, pure and nutrient-rich natural food while reducing the environmental damage done by traditional farming methods.

Our Story

Better Shrooms is a proud product of AgriFacture, a family-owned group that is doing cutting-edge research into the future of farming.

AgriFacture and its model of controlled environmental agriculture will allow consumers to enjoy local, fresh, pesticide-free, nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits, mushrooms and herbs year-round, regardless of where they live. AgriFacture currently utilizes a 10,000-square-foot research and development facility and has plans to build a 40,000-square-foot indoor farm in Flat Rock, North Carolina. 

Unlike other commercial vertical farms on the market today, AgriFacture changes the dynamic by utilizing robotics and automation to control the entire process – from seed to fork.

The new age of agriculture is here.
