About Us

Welcome to Green Yams – Where Nature Meets Nurture

In 2020, amidst the rolling hills of Knoxville, a seed of an idea germinated into what is now Green Yams – a haven for mushroom enthusiasts and health-conscious individuals. Our journey, rooted in a passion for the natural world and a commitment to wellness, led us to expand our mycelium network to Denver in 2022. Today, we are more than just a business; we are a community dedicated to exploring and sharing the bountiful benefits of mushrooms.

Our Mission

At Green Yams, our mission is simple yet profound: to harness the power of mushrooms in creating products that nourish the body, mind, and soul. We believe in the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature, and through our offerings, we aim to bring this connection to the forefront of everyday life.

Our Products

Our range of mushroom-based products is a testament to our innovative spirit. From the invigorating Mushroom Brews that awaken your senses to the Match Lion drink mixes that blend tradition with modernity, each product is crafted with care and respect for nature. We source our mushrooms ethically, ensuring sustainability and quality in every sip and bite.

Cultivation Classes

In our Denver location, we've taken our passion a step further by offering in-person and online cultivation classes. These classes are not just about growing mushrooms; they are about growing a community. Whether you're a seasoned mycologist or a curious beginner, our classes provide a space to learn, share, and connect.

Community and Events

Green Yams is more than just an online presence. We are a vibrant part of the local community, regularly participating in farmers' markets and events in Denver and Knoxville. These events are opportunities for us to meet you, share our story, and hear yours. They are the moments where we come together to celebrate the gifts of nature.

Our Story

Green Yams' story is one of resilience, innovation, and a deep-rooted love for nature. Our founders, driven by a desire to bring the natural benefits of mushrooms to a wider audience, embarked on this journey with a clear vision. Today, that vision has blossomed into a thriving business that stays true to its core values: sustainability, wellness, and community.

Join Our Journey

As we continue to grow, we invite you to be a part of our story. Whether it's through trying our products, joining a cultivation class, or simply following us on our journey, your support means the world to us. Together, let's explore the magic of mushrooms and the wonders they hold.
