Episode 39: “Unlocking the Secret Health Benefits of Mushrooms”

A Conversation with Vale of Paradise

Mushroom experts Joey Bohler and Lexi Wroten join the VIE Speaks line-up to share the secret health benefits behind the nutrient-dense superfood. Joey found his passion for mushrooms at the Telluride Mushroom Festival in 2017. On the ride back to Florida, he researched as much as he could about mycology (the study of fungi). He then studied under Eric Myers of Myers Mushrooms in El Paso, Texas, where his passion further blossomed. In December 2017, Joey built his first “mushroom operation” in his garage. Business partner Alexis Wroten later joined the team, and Vale of Paradise now supplies many South Walton, Florida restaurants with premium mushrooms, including Farm & Fire and others owned by Chef Jim Shirley. They also attend the weekly farmers markets in Rosemary Beach, Niceville, Grand Boulevard, and Seaside and are building a new facility and mushroom farm. Their products include foraged mushrooms, mushroom grow kits, tinctures, and dehydrated mushroom jerky. Learn more about this superfood when you give this episode a listen.
