Our small farm is an immersive experience in and of itself and we take time to teach you how we integrate fungi into the broader context of homesteading resiliently. Once booked, we'll reach out with more information on our farm and what you can look forward to during your stay with us.

This was a truly incredible experience. This is one of the best travel/adventure decisions we've ever made. What wonderful humans Micha and Dan are and their farm is an incredible place to learn, enjoy and relax. We feel incredibly lucky to have had the chance to forage in the forest with them and know more about the fantastic fungi that grows there. The food was incredible as well as the farmhouse where we stayed. No detail was overlooked and we were so comfortable and well taken care of during our whole stay. If you have been dreaming of foraging in the forest, go see these beautiful folks and you will not be disappointed.

A really special experience! Dan & Micha are very knowledgeable about mushrooms and I learned so much as well as foraged a good amount. But more than the mushrooms, staying at Myrtle Glen and learning about the farm was an unforgettable experience. Dan and Micha are so passionate about what they do and this shows through everything - especially the food! I highly recommend this experience and can't wait to come back.

This experience has been saved on my wish list for a few years now and I’m sad it took me so long to book. The weekend was amazing...everything. Dan and Micha have a beautiful place and they have thought of every detail to make guests feel comfortable. The food, the conversations, the animals, the knowledge of forging mushrooms, the house and the entire experience pulled together were perfect. We can’t wait to go back for another visit and experience!

This is one experience everyone that is even slightly interested in trying should do without a second thought. Dan & Micha made the trip truly memorable, special, exciting and fun. And oh man, the food they prepared was AMAZING, like too rated restaurant amazing. I was just as excited for each meal as I was for what they had planned for us to do on the excursion. The house we stayed in was magical, rustic and just beautiful. It was artfully decorated with stunning photography from Dan & Micha, most of which are images from the Oregon area which was a nice way to see other parts of the state we couldn’t make it to. The farm was so peaceful and welcoming, even the animals would come up and greet you like you were family. The actual mushroom foraging itself was epic. The amount of knowledge and passion Dan & Micha have was fabulous; they got so excited over some of the various mushrooms we found it was like seeing kids in a candy store, I loved it. From the very first moment we walked onto the farm we were treated with warmth, kindness and inclusion, I can’t say enough good things about this trip, this farm or the people hosting it. You won’t be disappointed.

If you are lucky enough to go mushroom foraging with Micha and Dan then be prepared for an experience of a lifetime! The cabin is so cute, the family is so friendly and the food is amazing!! You will learn about mushrooms, and walk in the forest and find some good ones. We had the best three days, we relaxed, we unplugged and we spent some time enjoying nature.
