Welcome to

Emerald Castle Farms

We've had the same website for a while now, and I felt like it was time for an update. With the addition of medicinal mushrooms and other items, I expect new customers from outside ginseng circles. I am hopeful this new design will help accommodate the new folks and those of you who use mobile devices a little better. If you are already familiar with our website, you will recognize most of the pages and articles. Some of them have been updated where appropriate. Oh, and the navigational links to move around the site are always at the top of the pages now. I welcome your thoughts and comments.

Medicinal Mushrooms

Adding medicinal mushrooms to our product line is one of the most exciting things I’ve gotten involved in for a while now. In doing my own research, I’ve found these mushrooms –Chaga, Reishi (Ling Zhi) and Turkey Tail- have been used in folk medicine around the world for centuries. I’m not one to tell you this will cure that and that will solve this, but there are starting to be a considerable accumulation of research on these mushrooms and their potential role in human health. These mushroom products like any natural product cannot be patented so there is no benefit for big pharmaceutical companies to fund research which would lead to the FDA approving their use in specific circumstances. However, researchers are looking at the benefits of the constituents of the mushrooms in an attempt to isolate specific compounds which could be artificially reproduced and patented. It is in this body of literature that many health benefits have been documented. For instance all of these mushrooms show anti cancer/tumor properties among many other benefits based on the literature.
