Mountain Mushrooms is a Reno farming enterprise run by Loping Coyote Farms.

Loping Coyote Farms is a local LLC started in Reno in 2009. We run a small plant nursery, develop gardens and farms, and do consultations and design work for gardens and farms.


Mountain Mushrooms is our latest adventure. On the north side of Reno (site pictured to the right), we are growing gourmet culinary mushrooms of the highest quality to sell in our local community.

About Us

The Difference – Why Choose Our Mushrooms?

  • Quality

    • We put all our efforts into small-scale production focused on growing the very best mushrooms, not the very most mushrooms. By growing on such a small-scale, we are able to watch our systems very closely and fine-tune our growing to make sure we are, in fact, getting the best product that we possibly can. We believe the difference will show in the excellent taste of our high quality mushrooms. Loping Coyote has been a small business for years for this same reason, and we carry our dedication to quality through into our mushroom growing as well.

  • Freshness

    • We grow right here on the edge of Reno, and our entire operation is timed to get our mushrooms from our grow room to our customers as soon as possible. Fresh mushrooms don’t last long; quality and taste decreases dramatically when they have to sit for very long after picking. We know we can get our mushrooms to our customers much quicker, with much more freshness in them, than any non-local growers. Mushrooms are like greens – they cannot be shipped far without losing a lot of their life.

  • Local

    • We are currently the only local mushroom growers in the Reno/Tahoe area. We have been residents of this community most of our lives and our business has been operating 100% locally since 2009, growing a loving following of locals for over 8 years. We believe in helping to create a resilient and rich local food movement, and we want to offer our high quality mushrooms as a part of that collection of locally-produced, locally-owned, locally-invested food enterprises.
