Flyway Family Farm is a small, permaculture based family farm specializing in gourmet mushrooms and beyond organic vegetables. We are nestled in the heart of the Shawnee Hills, surrounded by Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. The health and happiness of our plants, fungi, animals, and soils are our top priorities. This is accomplished, in part, by rotational grazing using large paddocks along with mobile chicken, rabbit, and hog pens.

Our gourmet mushrooms are available year round on the farm or through our "shroom shares" CSA. During the winter we are at the Carbondale Community Farmers Market inside the Carbondal Highschool. Our mushrooms are also available at the Neighborhood Co-Op in Carbondale or can be prepared for you by the amazing chefs at Toms Place in Desoto. During the growing season we will also be at the outdoor Carbondale Farmers Market. We also hope to supply mushrooms at several new markets this year so stay posted.
